The absolute best way to get to Fenway is to take the subway (known locally as the “T”) to Kenmore Square off the Green Line. Make your way to the Park Street station and you can take any train on the Green Line except for the E train. Visit the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA)site for the latest subway fare and pass information. Leave yourself some extra time getting in because, as game time approaches, the cars get VERY crowded and seating is limited. Another option is to take the MBTA communter rail to Yawkey Station, which is in easy walking distance to the park. A third option is to use MBTA bus routes 8 or 19 between the Ruggles Station, located on the Orange Line, and Fenway Park Gate A; this trip takes an estimated 15 minutes.
If you must drive to Fenway Park, leave with plenty of time to spare. Traffic begins to back up on local streets about one hour before games officially start, especially on Brookline Avenue, Beacon Street, and Commonwealth Avenue approaching Fenway Park, Kenmore Square, and Storrow Drive heading towards Kenmore Square.
Due to the ball park’s location in Boston, there is extremely limited parking close to the park. Parking also comes at a premium, with most places charging upwards of $40 to park anywhere from 1 to 10 minutes away by foot. The Official Team Parking Garage, the 100 Clarendon Garage at 100 Clarendon Street, is located 15 minutes away from the park; with a capacity of 2,000 vehicles, you pay just $10 if you pre-pay online and $27 if you pay day of game. Another cost-saving suggestion is to park 12 minutes away at the Prudential Center off Boylston Street for only $15 (valid only with a game ticket in-hand). You can also park 14 minutes away at the Boston University Lot on Babcock Street for just $6, but space is limited (just 375 spots).
