Transportation: Boston Children’s Hospital and Boston Medical Center are accessible by car, bus or subway. For those who wish to take public transportation (the MBTA or just “The T”), the Blue line stops at the airport (shuttle buses run from each terminal to the T stop). The MBTA trip-planning site is particularly useful in choosing which subway trains and/or buses to take. Just enter “Logan Airport” and “300 Longwood Ave” (address of Children’s Hospital) or “Boston Medical Center” in the boxes where addresses are requested. For those who drive, parking garages are available at each institution. Alternatively, use the new Google Maps
directions feature. Go to Boston, MA then click “Get Directions” (upper left corner), enter “Logan Airport” into “A” and either “300 Longwood Ave” (BCH) or “1 Boston Medical Center Place” (BMC) into “B”. Set the drop down menu to “by public transit” and click “Show options” to set the time you wish to depart from Logan or arrive at your destination. Click “Get Directions”. Various combinations of bus, subway, light rail and walking will be offered as options.
Boston Children’s Hospital also had a new downloadable iPhone/Android app for families called MyWay Mobile App that contains useful information about how to get around the hospital and local places to stay, among other things.
