marathon-viewing-map_new1-page-0The MBTA is proud to host thousands of Marathon Day spectators and runners every year as they travel throughout Boston. To make traveling around the city easier on race day, there is a special Marathon viewing map with distances to the race course from transit stations and the MBTA is offering unlimited travel tickets for Marathon Day on the Framingham/Worcester Commuter Rail Line.

The Boston Marathon will be run on Monday, April 17, 2017, and before and after the race transit service will run on rush-hour schedules.

Pre-marathon activities are also scheduled on Saturday, April 15, and Sunday, April 16 so the MBTA will be adjusting various bus routes in and around Copley Square to circumvent street closings. In addition, on Marathon Day, various bus routes will be detoured and Copley Square Station will be closed.

Due to an increase in customers using the MBTA on Marathon Day, bikes are not allowed on any MBTA vehicles on Monday, April 17. Please note, backpacks, coolers, cans, bottles and large items are not permitted at the marathon.

Check the MBTA Marathon Day event summary for additional information.
