Public Transportation

There is a free shuttle to MGH-East (Charlestown) that picks up at both the MGH Main Campus (off of the Charles/MGH stop on the Red Line) and at North Station (on the Green Line).

At MGH Main Campus, the pickup is on Blossom Street, in front of the entrance to the Jackson Building at the back of the hospital. On weekdays, it runs every quarter-hour (for precise schedule, see below). Enter the main hospital at the White Building entrance and walk all the way to the back of the hospital, turn right and exit via the door of the Jackson Building. Note that there are a number of information desks at the hospital where you can ask for the location of the shuttle bus.

At North Station, the pickup is at the intersection of Causway Street and Haverhill Street (in the alley to the right of CVS). The shuttle leaves main MGH every quarter-hour and reaches North Station about 8-10 minutes later.
