On Tuesday, March 22, 2016, the MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics (MIT CTL) will convene members from the 40+ Partner companies that are members of the MIT CTL Supply Chain Exchange. The intention of this annual partner meeting is to provide our Partners with an update on the latest research and development activities at MIT CTL, and allow us to solicit input from our Partners on future plans for the Center.

This meeting coincides with our Annual Crossroads Conference being held on Wednesday, March 23, 2016. Don't miss out on the opportunity to exchange ideas and learn about our plans for the coming year.

For additional accommodation listings, please see Visiting CTL; however, please note that the room rates do not vary greatly for those hotel properties in proximity to MIT.

Where is the nearest airport?
Boston's Logan International Airport.

What is the best way to travel from the airport?
To get to MIT from the airport, we strongly suggest taking a cab. The trip will take anywhere from 15-30 minutes, and the fare is roughly $30-35. The cab fare from Logan is always a bit more than the return, because a surcharge at the airport and a tunnel toll add approximately $5 to the total fare.

If you live locally and prefer public transportation, take the MBTA Red Line to the Kendall/MIT stop. It is a short three block walk from the T.

Should I rent a car?
We do not recommend renting a car. The expense on top of poorly marked streets and lack of available parking makes having a car more of a nuisance than a convenience.

If I drive, how do I get there and where can I park?
If you are renting a car or will be driving, MapQuest and Google Maps offer excellent mapping services to get you from your doorstep to MIT. The physical address of the Media Lab is 75 Amherst Street, Cambridge, MA.

The nearest self-parking garage is The Green Garage, adjacent to the Cambridge Marriott (50 Broadway). Rates are as follows:

  •   3-10 hrs, $36
  • 10-24 hrs, $40

This garage is not owned or operated by the Marriott.

Addresses for your mapping requests: 50 Memorial Drive, Cambridge, MA and the nearest parking garage is adjacent to 50 Broadway, Cambridge.

What should I wear?
Appropriate attire is business casual; no ties or suit coats are necessary.

What if I have a dietary restriction or allergy?
If you have any dietary restrictions or allergies, please email MIT CTL Events Coordinator, Nancy Martin, ctl-events@mit.edu to let her know.
