not a month i don't think, you can do the entire South Side CR system in one day, all the subway lines the next day, the ferry's the third day, then the North Side CR system in maybe a day or 2, the bus lines, i don't know, maybe several days for the bus's. but i think it an be done in under two weeks

Bus routes might take about four to five days to accomplish depending on whether you ride round trip, double back, or transfer to other routes at end points. Sticking to a distric ta day(Lynn, Charlsetown, Bennett, and Arborway are the districts) maximizes the results since there are many hubs and duplicate routings out of them.

The rail lines get done the quickest- two days for commuter rail provided you go on weekdays, a full day for the light rail and rapid transit lines if that.

Well I haven't done all the busses but most of them... As for the rail lines along with the commuter rail I would have to say about 1 week and some change. I still do ride the subway lines a lot because I have a C+ pass.

Eight hours is a decent time if you catch the very next train leaving from the terminals and do some walking.

I'd say it takes about 10 hours at most if someone catches lunch at one point and misses a few trains along the way.

Same can be said if there's a long wait between trains, especially the Green Line, which alone could take 3 hours if you ride all 4 branches, including the 39 bus to Arborway.

subway lines can be done easily short of a day. I've done it in 6 hours
