Contents

Silver Line

The Silver Line (internally 741, 742, 743, 746 and 749) is a bus rapid transit system marketed as rapid transit.

  • SL1: Airport–South Station via Waterfront
  • SL2: Boston Marine Industrial–South Station via Waterfront
  • (SL3): City Point–South Station via Waterfront (discontinued)
  • SL4: Dudley Square–South Station via Washington
  • SL4: Dudley Square–Downtown Crossing via Washington

Crosstown Express

The crosstown (CT) buses provide limited-stop service with free transfers to subways.

1-202

These routes all serve the immediate Boston area, and most were inherited from the Metropolitan Transit Authority. They are numbered roughly clockwise from southeast to northeast, with 4 the furthest south in South Boston (1 was a combination of the 47 and 76 in 1962) and 121 the furthest north (roughly) in East Boston. Numbers from 131 to 137 are former Eastern Massachusetts Street Railway routes in the Melrose area. 170 and 171 are special low-service routes, the 170 a variant of the 70 and the 171 a replacement for early morning CT3 service (when it was cut back from Logan Airport). Routes from 191 to 197 are single round trips in the early morning, mainly meant for subway fare collectors but open to the public. 201 and 202 were redesignations of the two directions of the 20 loop in March 2005.
