Boston's public transportation system, the MBTA, known as "the T", was the first subway in the United States and continues to be one of the easiest ways to get around Boston/Cambridge.
The closest subway station to campus is Kendall Square on the Red Line. You may also want to consider going to Central Square (also on the Red Line) or taking the #1 or CT1 bus across the Charles River from Back Bay, depending on where you are coming from and your destination on campus.
From Amtrak/South Station, take the Red Line toward Alewife and exit at the Kendall/MIT stop.
The #1 (Dudley/Harvard Station) bus stops at MIT on Massachusetts Avenue and provides transportation to Central Square and Harvard Square (Northbound), and Boston (Southbound). The MIT stop is at a large crosswalk with a stoplight. On one side of the street are steps leading up to large Ionic columns and the small dome of MIT; on the other side of the street is the Stratton Student Center and Kresge Auditorium.
Use bike sharing to come to the conference! Free 24-hour Hubway passes will be given out to attendees, so find a station near where you are staying. The nearest Hubway station from the auditorium is at the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Amherst Street. Bike racks are available outside of the Stratton Student Center.
Please note there is no public parking on the MIT campus. Visitors may find off-street parking at any of the local hotels; there's also a small public lot on the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Vassar Street. Fees are in the range of $20-$30 per day.
