Colonial Road Runners Presents....

The South Shore Bus to the 2014 Boston Marathon

If you are a South Shore runner who is registered for the 2014 Boston Marathon, here is the best way to get to Hopkinton on race day (Monday, April 21st), without having to travel into Boston to take a BAA shuttle bus. Colonial Road Runners sponsors a comfortable intercity "coach" bus that goes directly to Hopkinton from the Braintree MBTA Red Line Station. In Hopkinton, the bus will be parked near the Athletes Village at Hopkinton High School, in a lot set aside by the BAA exclusively for running clubs. The bus will remain in Hopkinton, and available for your use, until after the race begins.

Departure Location:

The Colonial Boston Marathon Bus will depart from the Braintree MBTA Red Line Station at Exit 17 (Union Street) off Route 3.  This will allow you to park at the adjacent MBTA garage ($7/day), and return by subway or train to your car after finishing the Marathon.

Departure Time:

6:30 AM SHARP! (The BAA requires that the bus arrive in Hopkinton by 8:00 AM.)


$15 for Colonial Road Runners members, $25 for non-members. A discount on the Marathon bus is just one benefit of Colonial Road Runners membership. If you are a non-member, please visit our website at for information on membership and club activities. Join now, and save right away on the Marathon bus!

Additional Information

The bus is available only to runners who are registered for the Boston Marathon. Bus registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and fees are nonrefundable. We are only allowed to send one bus to Hopkinton. Please register early, and don't miss out!  Further Information: John Goldrosen, or (781) 447-2812
