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
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
facilities. The Cambridge Center lots are all a short walk
to the Stata Center. Most lots charge $20.00 for one day parking.
