So BC offers a discounted semester T pass, but I don't know which one I would need. What's the diff between a Linkpass and a Zone 1A pass? Would i need to use the inner or outer express busses?? Totally lost when it comes to public transit.
A linkpass is a standard monthly pass that gives you unlimited T and Bus usage. It does not cover commuter rail or certain express buses. (For a better description, go to www.mbta.com
I think that you should be fine with a linkpass, but it totally depends on where you are living. If you know this, go to www.mbta.com
and use the trip planner funciton (at the bottom of the screen). If you are planning on living on the Boston College line of the Green line, you can take the green line to Boston College and grab the shuttle that goes from BC to BC Law (for this you will definitely only need a linkpass). Anyway, the mbta website should give you enough information, if it doesn't, go ahead and give the T a call... their transit system may not be so nice, but their phone people are.
