Arriving by bus or Amtrak: Amtrak and most buses stop at South Station on the red line. Follow the signs and take a subway (the T) in the direction of Alewife (outbound). Get off at Harvard Square station. The ride takes 10-15 minutes. The subway fare is $2.65. Other buses may drop you off at the airport.
Get to Cambridge from the airport:
- Public transportation: The Silver Line (SL1) runs every 8-12 minutes. It takes you on at any terminal and drops you off at South Station on the red line. The SL1 is also free when you take it at the airport. Once at South Station, go down the stairs and take a subway (the T) in the direction of Alewife (outbound). Get off at Harvard Square station. The ride can take 35 minutes or more.
- Taxi: You can also take a taxi from the airport to Harvard Square. Most taxis will ask you to give $5.50 in cash for the toll (not included in the taxi fare) on the way to Boston proper. The toll fee is for a round trip to and from the airport. So, in return, you should get a ticket allowing you to pass through the toll a second time on the way back without paying. The taxi fare to Harvard Square should be approximately $40, and the ride should take about half an hour.
Welcome to Harvard!
