*Pick up/drop off at Alewife Station is in the "Passenger Pick Up/Drop Off" area in the rear of the  station.  Look for the "Shuttle Stop #1" sign and a green bus that says “The Grid”.

The trains pull into the station on the bottom level. Exit the train. Regardless of which side of the station the train is on, continue walking along the platform in the direction the train was traveling (do not go towards Russell Field). Go up the stairs/escalator. Pass through the exit gates on that level. Bear right, pass through the doors, and head up one more level to the "Passenger Pick Up/Drop Off" area, following the station's signs. This will be between the lanes where the buses pick up and the access road, under the "Drop Off/Pick Up" overhead sign shown.
