Getting to and around MIT
To all our visitors, MIT community demonstrators, Open House programmers, staff, and volunteers, THANK YOU for making it a wonderful day Under the Dome! More at MIT News
MIT is located in Cambridge, MA, just over the bridge from downtown Boston. Please refer to the transportation information below as you plan for your visit on April 23.
Getting to MIT
TRANSPORTATION FROM OUTSIDE OF CAMBRIDGE AND BOSTON
We strongly advise that visitors planning to drive to Cambridge park at an MBTA commuter rail or subway station and use public transportation to travel to campus. Many of the MBTA subway and commuter rail stations offer parking, which you may prefer over driving into the city. Please refer to the MBTA's trip planner to find the station nearest to you—the MBTA website is also useful for finding fare information and daily parking rates at individual stations.

Parking in Cambridge is expensive and very difficult to find on an average day. Complicating things further are the occasional detours and road closures due to ongoing construction.

Once you're here, you can get around campus on the MIT shuttles that will run throughout the day.
For Under the Dome activities, limited on-campus parking is available:
Paid parking lots and garages can be found around campus:
