The two primary means to get to the venue are taxis that pick up from the airport and public transportation on the MBTA:

Taxis:

Taxis from Boston Logan Airport to the ICDERS venue and the official conference accommodations charge approximately 30-40 USD. Prices during rush hour may be higher, depending on traffic.

Note that, due to construction, the suggested taxi drop-off and pick-up location closest to the George Sherman Union is 735 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215.

Public Transportation:

The MBTA offers two options for public transport to/ from Boston Logan airport:

Silver Line Bus Rapid Transit service (SL1) and Blue Line Subway service. Both options offer connections to the next MBTA services toward the ICDERS venue and the official conference accommodations. The approximate travel time for those locations is 50-60 min.

Silver Line buses are free from Logan Airport inbound to South Station (including a free transfer to the Red Line). Note that for your return trip you will need to buy a ticket outbound from South Station to Logan Airport.

To reach the Blue Line from any terminal at Boston Logan, board free Massport shuttle buses (Route Nos. 22, 33, or 55 to “MBTA Blue Line”) outside your terminal. The Massport shuttle buses will drop you off directly in front of Airport Station.

The easiest way to pay for public transport in Boston is the CharlieTicket. It can be purchased at ticket machines at most stations such as Airport Station and South Station. Some buses request cash payment (exact change).
