Parking and Transportation

We cannot provide on-campus parking for all attendees. If you are coming from the North or West, you may find it most convenient to drive to Alewife Station and take the Red Line to Kendall Square (MIT is about 2 blocks from the Kendall Square Station, which is on Main St.) If you are coming from the South, you can park at Braintree or Quincy Station and take the Red Line as well. See this Red Line Map. Parking at these stations is $7.00.

If you are driving to MIT, there are several nearby pay parking lots. See MIT's page listing public parking facilities. The Cambridge Center lots are all a short walk to the Stata Center. Most lots charge $20.00 for one day parking.
