Directions

By Air
The nearest airport is Boston's Logan International Airport. Once you arrive, there are usually plenty of taxis available at the taxi stand on the arrivals level. The trip to Brandeis University generally takes 20-50 minutes depending on traffic.

Uber and Lyft also operate in Boston. They are not allowed to wait at the curb or the Limo section of the parking lot so you will need to request the ride upon exiting baggage claim.

The cost of a regular taxicab from Logan airport to the Brandeis campus or the Newton Hotels ranges between $60-$75 depending on the time of day. For fares to other locations, you may wish to check on Taxi Farefinder.
 

By Train (commuter rail)
Commuter train service is available from Boston's North Station (Fitchburg/South Acton line) to the Brandeis/Roberts Station that borders the campus.

See MBTA commuter rail schedules
