T Time: A trip to Wonderland

​This past weekend I took a trip to one of the MBTA’s most uniquely named stations — Wonderland. Despite its faults, I give the T credit for giving its stations better names than “blah blah street” or “so and so avenue.” Some of my personal favorites include Alewife, Haymarket, Brandon Hall and Beachmont. For those interested in traveling to Wonderland, take the Green Line from Medford/Tufts to Government Center and then transfer to an outbound Blue Line train and take it all the way to the end of the line. The trip was about 45 minutes each way which is a bit long, but worth it in my opinion.

T Time: Spring in Central Square

This past Sunday, I woke up early, hopped on the T, and spent my morning strolling around Central Square and the surrounding neighborhoods. For those interested in visiting, you can take the Red Line from Davis Square and reach your destination within 20 minutes.

T Time: The ‘Green Line Extension World Tour’ to Union Square

For today’s column, I performed what I am calling a “Green Line Extension World Tour” on my way to visit Union Square station. In my travels, I passed through all sixGLX stations plus Lechmere. For those interested in visiting Union Square, you can take the Green Line from the Medford/Tufts station to Lechmere and then transfer to an outbound Green Line D.

T Time: Double feature — Copley and Washington Square

This past weekend, my mom visited, and we decided to spend the day inBoston. During our excursion, we traveled to two different T stations:Copley andWashington Square. When considering what to write this week’s column about, I could not choose which station to cover so I decided to cover both!

T Time: The mystery of Riverside Station

If you have ever looked at a map of the MBTA on your phone, you may have noticed that the D branch of the Green Line extends far west of Boston like a long, green tentacle, ending at Riverside Station. This quirk of the T has always intrigued me. Why does the D branch extend so much farther than other branches of the Green Line? What mysteries lurk at Riverside Station? To answer these questions that rattle in the back of my mind, I dove into the world of investigative journalism and journeyed to Riverside Station.

T Time: Ditch the Uber for the T

Typically, I use this column to focus on one specific MBTA station and the neighborhood surrounding it. However, I recently traveled out of Boston via plane and Amtrak, so I thought it would be helpful to discuss how to use the T to access other forms of transportation, especially before the upcoming winter break.

T Time: Back Bay

Last weekend, I took the T to Back Bay station to visit a friend in the South End, so I thought it would be a perfect time to review the station! For anyone interested in going to Back Bay, you can take the Green Line from Medford/Tufts to North Station then transfer to a Forest Hills-bound Orange Line train. Back Bay is six stops away from North Station, and it took me a little more than 25 minutes to get there from Tufts.

T Time: Kendall/MIT

Over the weekend, I had a friend’s birthday dinner in the vicinity of Kendall Square and thought it would be a perfect time to review the station. For those interested in visiting the station and the area, it is located on the Red Line of the MBTA. It took me about 20 minutes to get there from the Davis station (the Red Line, unfortunately, does not put the “rapid” in “rapid transit”).

T Time: North Station

I want to begin by crediting Kevin Zhang for inspiring this column. Before graduating from Tufts, Zhang wrote a column called “Tales from the T,” which I seek to now continue with “T Time.”
