Encore Boston Harbor
Set to the backdrop of the beautiful Boston Harbor, Encore resort and casino offers luxury accommodations and vibrant nightlife. And while this area of the city sees its fair share of travelers, there are plenty of transportation options from the T and Encore to help you get where you're going—without all the traffic.

Encore offers shuttle service and Neighborhood Runners from select T stations. One-way trips are completely free, and you can hop on any time of the day or night.
If you’re visiting from outside of Boston, you can get the Orange Line at Back Bay or North Station.
Please note: Ongoing track maintenance along several sections of the Orange Line may impact your route. Be sure to check Orange Line alerts before you leave.
