The number 80 bus, which runs from the Lechmere T stop to Arlington Center, stops right at Mudville's door. During rush hours the bus runs every 15 minutes. Later in the evening, it only runs every hour so it is important to keep track of the time. If you miss the bus, it is about a 20 minute walk down the highway to get to the Lechmere T stop.
