Public transportation
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.

From Amtrak/South Station, take the Red Line toward Alewife and exit at the Kendall/MIT stop.  Walk ten minutes to the Chang Building located on 50 Memorial Drive.

By Bus
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.  

Car Parking
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.   Click here for more information on public lots near campus.
