Transport to WPI

By air

WPI is, on a good day, a one-hour drive from Boston's Logan Airport. Car rental agencies are plentiful at the airport, or arrange for a van to pick you up, e.g. Knight's Airport Limousine Service. Count on one and one-half hours after pick-up for you to arrive here, two hours during rush hour. Bus service is a less expensive alternative; see below. Other nearby commercial airports are in Providence RI, Hartford CT, and Manchester NH. Ten minutes away is a small but highly convenient airport, the Worcester Regional Airport.

By train

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority runs a commuter service from Boston's South Station to Worcester several times a day on the weekends and more frequently during the week.

Amtrak connects us daily to Rochester, Cleveland, and Chicago via the Lakeshore Limited line.

By bus

Greyhound and Peter Pan run regular service between Worcester's bus station at Union Station, 2 Washington Square, and Boston's South Station or Logan Airport.

By car

We are located north of the Massachusetts Turnpike (Interstate 90), 50 miles west of Boston on Interstate 290, which bisects Worcester. If you are heading northeast on 290, use Exit 17; traveling southwest, take Exit 18. Driving time from New York City is approximately four hours.  For GPS navigation systems, the effective address for the main entrance to the Park Avenue garage is at 153 Salisbury Street, Worcester MA, next to the First Baptist Church.
