Not very often but it does run. I needed the #8 bus and it did stop at Woodland MBTA station (it’s on the Green Line) at just a little bit after the scheduled 12:08 time. They run this loop ten times throughout the day, more or less hourly.
Some of these places are difficult to access from the city and so a shuttle but that supplements the Green Line out here is helpful.
Fare of $1.50 cash or Charlie Card. They do not accept Charlie Tickets.
It needs to be more often to be useful for me but this tempo may be good for you.
