returning from gillette stadium at night

I am planning to return from a one diretcion concert on a Saturday night from gillette stadium to hanover street. Is using the public transportation at night safe for for me and my teenage daughter?

If not, should we rent a car?

Thanks

Gillette Stadium is about 30 miles from Boston and not easily accessible without a car.

To my knowledge there is no easily accessible public transportation. When the Patriots play there is a special train, but it usually does not run for concerts. There are commuter trains that run NEAR Gillette, but they don't have frequent late night trains and getting a taxi to the train after the game is extremely difficult. I have been to concerts where I did not get out of the parking until 2 hours after the event ended because of gridlock.

I am sorry to have to tell you this. It has been a long running discussion. There has been talk of a permanent, regular stop at the stadium, but the owners of the land (and stadium) and the transit authority have been unable to come to an agreement.

You're in luck. The MBTA is running a train from Boston to Gillette Stadium for only the Sat. night One Direction show (no train on Thursday or Friday). $15 roundtrip per person. Details on link below. Take that train. When you get back to South Station, it's quickest and easiest to just take a taxi to Hanover St since it will be late.

I'm pretty sure that "dedicated-doctor" already knows about the train and is asking if it is "safe".

OP doesn't mention the special train to the stadium in their post, just public transportation. I do agree that the public transportation is safe.
