Depending on where in JP you live, I would either do a healthy walk or take the #39 bus. It's downhill on the way there. Hope this helps.

There is not a very close T station. However, the closest bus stop is on Corey St at VFW Parkway.

According to google maps they are about 40 minutes apart. So I would suggest leaving at about 6:45.

Hope this helps.

There are a couple of options for the T when living at Emerson Place. If you are looking for the Red Line - Charles/MGH. If you are looking for Green Line, Orange Line, Commuter Rail or Amtrak - use North Station. Haymarket (which is also close) is Green Line, Orange Line and Bus Routes. ... more

Hello,

Owning a car in Boston takes some getting used to. In some neighborhoods you will need to get a "resident parking permit" to park on the street. It's free and you get them from city hall, but it does require some paperwork. Once you have one you just need to be mindful of the days on which the City sends sweepers through to clean the streets.

When it snows, you'll obviously have to dig the car out. It takes some time and energy, but when you look at how much time having a car saves you, it may feel like it's worth it to you.

Having a parking space of your very own would be ideal. Whether you are renting an apartment or buying a home, some will have parking spaces that go with them, but most will not. There is a secondary market you can access where people rent parking spaces. Rental parking rates are going to differ dramatically depending on what part of town you happen to reside in.

If you are only going to need a car occasionally, you may want to join with Zipcar and rent a car by the hour. A lot of the hassles and expenses that come with owning your own car will go away, but you still get to have the convenience when you need it.

Hopefully that covers it. If you still want to know more, you can reach me through Trulia.

Best,
George Wood

Consider the red line so areas such as Quincy would be worth considering:
