Transportation & Schooling

The North End is located just minutes from the Haymarket T stop on all four green lines and the orange line. Within the actual neighborhood, there are no T stops, but there is bus and water taxi access. The area is also home to the only “Innovation School” in Boston, the "Eliot K-8 Innovation School." Innovation schools are the result of a recent trend in education, which allows schools the freedom to formulate more "out-of-the-box" teaching and learning strategies to better fit the individual needs of students.
