Most long distance buses to Boston, as well as Amtrak-trains arrive at Boston’s South Station.
At South Station, you can take the subway (red line) to the MIT-campus (fare $2):
- At “South Station”, take the red line inbound (direction “Alewife”) (after exiting the bus, walk back over the platform and then take the stairs down to the red line platform).
- Get off at Kendall/MIT (fourth stop) for the conference site and hotels near the conference site (for other stops in Cambridge, like Central Square and Harvard, stay on the red line at Kendall/MIT)
Directions from the Kendall/MIT subway station to the conference site (4 minute walk):
- The conference will be held in the Stata Center at the MIT-campus.
- Upon exiting the Kendall/MIT station, take Main Street in a Northwesterly direction (away from the skyscrapers of downtown Boston and the subway bridge, along the MIT COOP, a branch of the Cambridge Trust bank and the Kendall Hotel). At the first intersection (Main Street with Ames Street), there is a walkway between two buildings on your left. This leads towards a field. Take that walkway, once you arrive at the field you will see a building straight ahead with a peculiar architecture (no straight walls, odd geometrical shapes, etc). That is the Stata Center.
Alternatively, you can follow these directions on google maps
