Convention Center Floor Plan Map


MBTA Shuttle & Subway:
Boston has a comprehensive public transportation system known as the MBTA or the "T," with bus lines, trolleys, and subway trains running throughout the city. Our best advice is to purchase a Charlie Card. Charlie Cards are free and may be obtained at ticket windows, for example at South Station and Kenmore Station, until 7 pm, seven days a week. There are also Charlie Tickets, available by machines, but passengers pay a small surcharge. Charlie Cards and Charlie Tickets may have money added to their balance as needed. You can use the MBTA's Trip Planner or Google Maps transit directions to find your way.

The MBTA has up-to-date advice posted for travelers from Logan Airport. Another option for travel from the airport is to take Back Bay Logan Express ($5, run by Massport) to either Copley or Hynes Auditorium stations.
