Getting Around in Boston
Getting around Boston is easy and fun, with 'trolleys' (buses made to look like trolleys) circling the key tourist sites. A day pass costs around $20, and you can use it as often as you like. While we wouldn't necessarily recommend driving (the roads are poor and parking is very expensive and limited), booking car hire in Boston is a comfortable way to see the city at your own pace.
