The Massachusetts subway is known as 'T'. It serves most of the city and Cambridge, and with several lines even running to the suburbs. Each line has its own colour, green Line trains are also called streetcars or trolleys, with the only difference that they depart less frequently. The price of a one-way ticket is less than 2$.
Buses are even cheaper than the Subway and their advantage is that they travel farther into the suburbs than the T. Most buses collect fares as you board.
Taxis can be easily hailed on the street but they can be quite expensive. All taxis use taximeter.
The shuttle boat departs from Rowe's Wharf to Logan Airport and from Long Wharf to Hingham, and travels all around the city; this transport offers the nicest view over Boston.
