by Mass Transit
Logan Airport is located about eight miles from Boston University. A taxi to the Institute costs about $18 and takes from a half-hour to an hour, depending on traffic. The subway from the airport takes about an hour.
Taking the MBTA (subway) from the airport
Take the Airport Shuttle Bus (which stops at all major terminals) to the “T” station. Then take an Inbound train to Government Center (fare: $1.25). Change to the Green Line Outbound (or Westbound) and take a Boston College (B) and get off at Boston University East. As you exit the train the College of Arts and Sciences building (725 Commonwealth Ave.) is directly across from you. We are on the fifth floor, room 514.
Most major bus lines operate from South Station. A taxi from South Station will cost $9 to $12 and will take about 30 minutes.
Taking the MBTA (subway) from South Station
From the Trailways or Greyhound station, walk to South Station and take the Red Line Inbound (toward Harvard) to Park Street Station (fare $1.25). Transfer to the Green Line Outbound (see directions under “By Air”).
Trains arrive in South Station and Back Bay. Follow South Station directions above (under “By Bus”). The Back Bay station is closer to campus, but involves a walk of several blocks to the Green “T” (MBTA subway) line or a taxi ride of $8 to $10.
