Getting to Boston

All students are responsible for coordinating any transportation needed to get to Boston for the conference.

Getting to and from Logan airport

The Doubletree Boston Bayside Hotel offers limited scheduled transportation to and from Logan airport. You can also take the T (part of the MBTA system) from the airport to the JFK/UMass stop located across from the hotel.

  • From the airport (free): From baggage claim at your terminal, follow signs to the Silver Line (it's similar to a bus). At the last stop, South Station, follow signs on the platform to transfer to the Red Line toward Ashmont/Braintree. Get off at JFK/UMass—the 3rd stop from South Station.
  • To the airport (fare required): Take the Red Line toward Alewife to South Station. From the subway platform, follow the signs to transfer to the SL1 Silver Line outbound to the airport.

Getting to and from hotel, EMKI and JFK Museum
The Doubletree Boston Bayside Hotel is one mile from the institute and museum. The walk is mostly flat. You can also take the UMass #1 bus from the T stop to the institute and museum.

On Friday evening, we'll be running an additional bus to take you from the museum back to the hotel.
