Money and Tipping

When dining in restaurants or taking taxis, it is customary to leave 15-20% tip since workers make minimum wage.

Local Transportation

Boston has a bus and a subway network, named the T. Fares are $2 for a single trip or $9 for a day pass (Jan 2012). http://www.mbta.com

To get downtown from the cruise terminal, first take the SL2 bus from Drydock or Black Falcon Ave (it does a loop at the pier) to South Station. You can transfer to the subway for one stop to Downtown Crossing on the red line.
