Although Lowell is only an hour northwest of Boston, it can be difficult to get from the airport to the conference center if you are not renting a car. A cab or rideshare can cost up to a hundred dollars each way, depending on time of day. We are mindful that this may not be cost effective for many conference attendees, so we have a group of very generous local folks who have volunteered to help with ridesharing. If you would like a ride from Boston Logan or Manchester airport to Lowell, please fill out a ride share request here.

There are two options for getting to Lowell if you are not renting a car:

A. When you arrive in Boston, you should follow signs for the Logan Express – Woburn which departs each terminal outside baggage claim. You can buy tickets online; the bus departs every 30 minutes and the ride is 20-30 minutes depending on time of day. Tickets are $12 each way. 

We will connect local volunteers to do pickups at the Woburn Transportation Center using the form linked above. The ride to Lowell is another 20-30 minutes. 

B. Alternatively, you can take a cab or use the following directions to get from the airport to the commuter train at North Station:

Board a FREE Massport shuttle bus (Route 22, 33 or 55) at any airline Terminal to the Blue Line Airport Station.  Take the Blue Line (toward Bowdoin) 3 stops to the State Street Station, where you will transfer to the Orange Line; take the Orange Line (toward Oak Grove) 2 stops to North Station Commuter Rail.

Book a commuter rail ticket online or at North Station.
The train takes 45 minutes to get to Lowell, costs $10.50 one way, and we can pick you up at the Lowell train station and take you to the conference center (it is about a mile but walking is not recommended due to construction). 

If you are arriving by Amtrak, you will arrive in South Station. Take the Red Line (toward Alewife) 1 stop to Downtown Crossing, transfer to the Orange Line (toward Oak Grove) 3 stops to North Station and proceed as in Option B to get on commuter rail.

If you are flying into Manchester, NH: You will need to take a cab or fill out the ride share form above. A cab will be slightly less expensive than one coming from Logan.
