Here’s how to get to Gillette Stadium concerts by train this summer
Well you did it. You fought Ticketmaster and somehow ended up being one of the lucky fans who managed to secure tickets to see Taylor Swift at Gillette Stadium this summer.
Now let’s talk transport to Foxborough.
Sure you can drive, but good luck in traffic.
MBTA announced Thursday that the S-Bahn and Keolis will offer special round-trip trains from Boston and Providence to select Gillette Stadium concerts this summer.
What stops will the train make?
Special trains departing from Boston stop at Back Bay and Dedham Corporate Center before arriving at Foxboro Station.
Special trains departing from Providence make stops in Attleboro and Mansfield before arriving at Foxboro Station.
The full schedule for each show will be announced closer to the show dates on the MBTA website.
The agency expects each train to arrive at Foxborough around an hour before the concert starts and leave the station around 30 minutes after each show has finished.
Which concerts are included?
|Taylor Swift | The Epoch Tour||May 19*, May 20 and 21|
|Ed Sheeran’s + – = ÷ x Tour||July 1. No special train service is currently scheduled for the June 30 show.|
|Luke Combs world tour 2023||22nd of July|
|Beyoncé Renaissance World Tour||1 Aug*|
|Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band Tour 2023||24 Aug*|
|Billy Joel and Stevie Nicks||23 Sept|
|*Service from Boston only|
Where applicable, any subsequent special train service to Gillette Stadium will be announced at mbta.com/destinations/gillette-stadium and will be updated once confirmed, the MBTA said.
How do I secure a ticket?
Round-trip tickets cost $20 and can be purchased through the mTicket app starting two weeks before each show. Concert-goers can also purchase them in person at the South Station, North Station, and Back Bay Station ticket offices.
For concerts with several dates, tickets go on sale two weeks before the first performance date. Swifties, for example, should look for tickets two weeks before May 19th.
Tickets must be purchased for a specific date, show, and station of origin (Boston or Providence). The MBTA said no refunds or exchanges will be available due to expected high demand.
Ticket sales end when maximum capacity is reached.
Note: Normal Commuter Rail tickets and passes are not valid on special trains.
