Commuter Rail seat availability is regularly updated to reflect a trip’s typical ridership based on automated and conductor data from the past 14-30 days.

Current seat availability thresholds are:

Many Seats Available: Typically more than 66% of seats are available and distancing is possible (~0-2 people per row)

Some Seats Available: Typically more than 33% of seats remain available and distancing may be possible (~2-3 people per row)

Few Seats Available: Typically fewer than 33% of seats available and distancing is unlikely (~3+ people per row)

Bicycles are allowed on trains with the bicycle symbol below the train number, subject to restrictions.

Passengers must tell the conductor that they wish to leave. Passengers waiting to board must be visible on the platform for the train to stop.

The train may leave ahead of schedule at these stops.

At stations with multiple tracks outside of North, South, Back Bay, and Ruggles Stations, inbound trains board from Track 2, and outbound trains board from Track 1 unless otherwise specified. Scheduled track changes will be denoted by the symbol. Check T-Alerts for real-time track changes.
