Transportation

Commuting to MIT

The Department of Facilities website provides information on parking permits, subsidized bus and rail passes, bike registration, ride sharing, and more.

Getting Around MIT

MIT offers a variety of shuttle services to help students get around campus and elsewhere.

Getting Around Boston

Boston and Cambridge are connected by a very good bus and train network (the subway/trolley system is called the T). Visit the MBTA website for maps, schedules, and a trip planner that can help you can get where you want to go using public transportation.

Airport Transportation

The easiest way to get to campus from the airport is to catch a taxicab (about $40, as of 2011). Ask for directions to a cab stand at one of the airport’s information desks.

It’s also possible to get to campus by T (visit the MBTA website for more information). Take the complimentary shuttle from the airport, then the Blue Line inbound to Government Center. Change for the Green Line and proceed one stop to Park Street. Change at Park Street for the Red Line outbound (toward Alewife) and exit at Kendall/MIT.

Note that MIT runs airport shuttles to Logan Airport just prior to the Thanksgiving, winter and spring breaks. Check the Facilities Airport Shuttle website for details.
