Check the MBTA.com website. As I recall, basically bikes are allowed on subways outside of peak hours, but never on the Green Line. On Commuter Rail, with stops within and beyond the subway service area, bikes are allowed on off peak hours (outbound in AM and inbound in PM). See the website for actual hours.
I'm a fortunate commuter because I live downtown and commute outbound to Norwood and then take the train home in the evening. See however our looming mass transit woes: "Boston's public transportation woes...."

I wear a helmet and I don't know what the laws are. If you need to rent a helmet, or a bike, try Back Bay Bikes.
