Boston is served by a network of underground and overground trams, 2 Amtrack stations and a large bus depot however it is not easy to get to Foxboro without driving. Trains are put on for New England Patriot games and should be for this. Tickets for the train can be bought in advance and do get bought up. Check the MBTA website near the time.

Tickets

Tickets will sell out very quickly via a ballot that is open to US and Canadian citizens. Try sites such as Ace Ticket though you will pay more than the face value.
