From Boston Logan International Airport, the cheapest way to get to the MIT campus is a combination of bus and subway. There are several options. The most convenient one is a combination of the Silver Line (bus) to South Station and the red line subway to the Kendall/MIT station.
Most long distance busses to Boston, as well as Amtrak-trains arrive at Boston’s South Station. From there take the red line to Kendall/MIT.
