You can take the subway (see www.mbta.com), take a taxi, or walk. You decide which is best.

Also, note that it's South Station, which is not in the South End.

It's a bit of a walk, especially if you have luggage. The subway would require a change of lines. I think you should just grab a cab. Probably will cost around $10.

Yeah, the South End is a neighborhood. South Station is a train station and they aren't close together. Boston neigborhood names can be very confusing ... remember they are NAMES and not locations and you'll be fine.

For example South Boston and the South End aren't near each other; the Back Bay is not near the water, etc, etc.

There's some ditty that circulated many years ago about the nighborhood names and how the names make no sense, but I don't have time to try to find it on the web right now.

If you are arriving early in the evening, you can try to take a train. Walk from the South Station bus terminal to the train terminal. They are connected. See if there is a commuter train (not Amtrak) leaving that stops at Back Bay Station. The stations are listed on the sign by the departure track. Back Bay Station is across the street from Copley Place. The ride is free. If there is no train leaving in the near future, you can get a taxi or the subway (Red Line inbound to Downtown Crossing, then Orange Line Forest Hills direction to Back Bay Station) from the train station. This will save money, but a taxi from the bus terminal is definitely the easiest way to go.
