PUBLIC TRANSIT INFO!

FIRST, the church is the Unitarian church in town. Smaller white church with the STEEPLE CUT OFF.

OPTION A (recommended):
http://www.mbta.com

Take the Orange Line to Oak Grove

Take the 136 OR 137 Bus Line from Oak Grove Orange Line Station towards Reading Depot (will travel through Melrose and Wakefield centers).

Get off in Wakefield center, at the corner of Main St and Water St walk to the Unitarian church.

OPTION B:
http://www.mbta.com

Look for the Haverhill line, it’s the Wakefield stop (obvs.)

Follow these walking directions:
After getting off the train, walk towards the Dunkin Donuts (corner of North Ave and Albion)
Walk down Albion to Main St
Take a left on Main St, towards Nono’s Pizza
Church will be on the right.
It’s that easy.

GREYHOUND ET AL BUS INFO:
If you’re coming from or through NYC, I would highly suggest MegaBus.com or Boltbus.com… very very cheap tickets and they have WiFi and AC Outlets on their buses.
For others, either out of state or not near a commuter rail stop, I would look on Greyhound.com or PeterPanBus.com… RI, CT, NH and ME are all represented.
