MBTA, Red Sox Partner to Offer Fans Free Subway Rides from Kenmore Station After August 21 Guns N’ Roses Concert



BOSTON – The MBTA and the Boston Red Sox today announced free subway rides to concertgoers after the Guns N’ Roses show on Monday, August 21, part of and funded by Fenway Park’s Nucar Fenway Concert Series, Presented by Wasabi Technologies. Fare gates at Kenmore Station will be open from 10 PM until the end of service, allowing free access to the subway system.

Beginning at 10 PM on August 21, turnstiles at Kenmore Station will open for free entry to all fans. Fans can board the Green Line outbound toward Boston College, Cleveland Circle, or Riverside, or take the subway into the City for transfers to the Red, Orange, or Blue lines on the MBTA subway system.

“We are excited to partner with the Red Sox to offer free subway rides to Guns N’ Roses fans,” said MBTA General Manager and CEO Phillip Eng. “This is a great way to encourage people to take public transportation to and from the concert and help reduce traffic congestion in the area.”

“We are committed to making it easy for fans to get to and from Fenway Park,” said Red Sox Executive Vice President for Legal and Government Affairs Dave Friedman. “This is a great way to do that, and we encourage fans to take advantage of public transit when traveling to the stadium.”

The Boston Red Sox will compensate the MBTA for the open fare gates for over two-and-a-half hours of service. Parking in the immediate area of Fenway Park is limited and the MBTA encourages all visitors to take public transportation to and from the venue.
