America's Oldest Subway know as "the T," opened in 1897, is still the best way to get around Boston. All underground stations on the red, orange, blue, and green lines have machines to buy tickets ($2.50 a ride) and some aboveground green line stations have them as well. For aboveground stations on the green line, cash and coins can be used upon entry if you don't already have a ticket. For routes, prices, and schedules, please see the MBTA's website.

By Taxi

Logan Airport has plenty of taxi stands which should be able to get you to the office quickly and efficiently. They accept both cash and credit.

By Rental Car

Rental cars are available at BOS airport, but driving is NOT recommended. Often known for its confusing roads and interesting driving habits, if you choose to drive around the city, make sure you note one-ways, no left turn intersections, and find a garage to park in. A lot of street parking is either meters or resident sticker parking only. Also, they're called rotaries, not roundabouts.

If you do rent a car DO NOT park at the Google campus!
