Apartment hunting in Boston is overwhelming for a whole slew of reasons—heavy competition, high pricing, and Craigslist searches that quickly spiral out of control are just a few of them. So, for your convenience, we’ve been highlighting a few Zumper listings united by a single characteristic. Last time, we took a look at some relatively-affordable Allston studios; for this round, we’ve gathered up Jamaica Plain apartments that are all located near a T station—because hey, those new Orange Line trains won’t ride themselves.

Below, peruse five apartments for rent in Jamaica Plain, all a short subway trip away.

392 Centre St. #3, Jamaica Plain
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,700 per month

Not only is this multi-family residence an easy 10-minute walk to the Jackson Square T station, it’s across the street from a Whole Foods—and for nights when you don’t feel like whipping up dinner, it’s also steps away from several restaurant options serving up Cuban, Ethiopian, Spanish, and Scottish fare. Up on the third floor, sunlight floods this pet-friendly unit.

3147-3149 Washington St., Jamaica Plain
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,750 per month

Available now, this first-floor three-bedroom apartment boasts a newly renovated kitchen with sparkling new appliances, nice hardwood flooring, and 1,300 square feet of space that can be made cat- or dog-friendly for an extra monthly free. The Stony Brook T stop is a one-third of a mile away—and more importantly, free beer samples at Sam Adams and bakery bites at Cafe Ula are five minutes away.

43 Boylston St. #3, Jamaica Plain
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,800 per month

Lavender and creamy-yellow walls pep up this sunny third-floor walk-up, which offers ceiling fans in each room, two closets, and shining hardwood floors. The Orange Line at Stony Brook is a sweet five-minute jaunt down the street, and when you’re on your way home, you can make a pit stop at City Feed and Supply for some organic provisions.

3215 Washington St. #B, Jamaica Plain
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 2
Rent: $3,300 per month

Located right next to the Video Underground, this apartment is great for film fanatics: Catch a Friday night movie screening and rent a cult-classic DVD on the way out. There are also several public parks and community gardens in the area, and Franklin Park Zoo is less than a mile away. The closest T station is the Orange Line’s Green Street, which is about eight minutes away by foot. The newly renovated unit itself sits at garden level, but light gray walls and recessed lighting help it feel bright—and in-unit laundry and central air are added bonuses.

68 Hyde Park Ave. #3, Jamaica Plain
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,695 per month

Recently revamped with stainless appliances, new hardwood floors, and LED recessed lighting, this pet-friendly apartment also comes with a back deck and spacious yard. Plus, it’s just 0.2 miles down the street from the Forest Hills T station—so even when winter comes, those trudges home through the snow shouldn’t take long.
