Air Travel
Boston has an international airport, Logan International Airport.  The
car ride from Logan to the Simmons campus is usually 15-30 minutes
depending on traffic.  A cab should cost between $20 and $30.

Ground Transporation
There are taxis readily available outside the airport terminals.  Rental
cars are also available at the airport, but on-street parking in Boston
is difficult and garage parking os expensive.  Boston is a very walkable
city, so you may not need to have a car while you are here.

You may also take the MBTA (Massachussetts Bay Transportation Authority, or the T) subway train from the airport.  The nearest T station to the Simmons campus is Museum of Fine Arts (5-minute walk).  From the airport you will take the silver line train to Arlington Station.  There,  you will switch trains MBTA green line E train (Heath Street) to the Museum of Fine Arts stop.  Turn right onto Louis Prang Street.  From here you can see Simmons green cupola.  Walk past the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum on the left.  Simmons College, 300 The Fenway, will be on the left.

Train Travel
Boston is also accessible via Amtrak train from Penn Station in New York.  It is a three to five hour trian ride, depending on whether you take the Acela Express Train or the Northest Regional Train.  The nearest Amtrak train stop is Back Bay Station (10-15 minute walk).
