Transportation

Public transportation

The Boston-area transit system is called the MBTA, or Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority. Their website is http://mbta.com/
This system uses paper and plastic cards which you can refill at automated kiosks in the stations by either charge card or cash. The tickets are called T-passes. If you get a T pass, the best deal for a brief visit, if you expect to go around in the city, is a 7-Day Visitor Pass.  The party location is a short bus ride from multiple Red Line subway stations.  These are the applicable bus lines:

  • 83 bus from Central or Porter
  • 87 bus from Davis
  • 86 bus from Harvard

Taxis

As one of the Asylum’s neighboring businesses is a brewery with bar, most taxi and ride sharing drivers know how to get to our building.

Bicycling

Boston has recently been repositioning itself as a forward-looking, bicycle-friendly city. There are city bikes for hire (http://www.thehubway.com/) available near the partyplace. Bring a helmet if you wear one. Unlike the T, which shuts down a half hour after midnight and does not reopen until 5am, you can check these out and return them at any hour of the day or night.
