We will be in the area for the first time in October as a part of a 10 day New England road trip . We plan to stay south of town and drive to a subway station with parking for the day, which will be on a Friday.
It appears that the Quincy Adams station on the Red Line is closest to our hotel. According to MBTA, there are 3 more on the red line closer (Quincy Corner, Wollaston and North Quincy) with several spaces and avg availablity anywhere from <1%-51%, and Braintree further out with <1% avg availability. Quincy Adams seemed to have the largest number of spaces (2538) and easy in and out from a major road.
My question is to anyone familiar with these stations: 1) How early would we need to get there to be sure to get a spot and what time does rush hour begin and end in general?
Does this seem like a good idea? My husband does not want to drive into the city. Sometimes looking at maps from 1200 miles away of a place you have never been does not always produce the best plan.
