If you will be flying in to Boston's Logan airport, driving to Tufts typically takes 30-45 minutes (depending on traffic), and
the subway will take about 1 hour. Flying in to Providence, Rhode Island (about an hour south of Boston) is often more
reasonable than Logan and may be worth the extra travel time. If
you would not be renting a car, there are trains
from Providence to Boston's South Station.
Boston is accessible via Amtrak train, which arrives at Boston's
South Station. From there you can get the subway to the Davis
Square stop on the Red Line. The Tufts campus is a 15 minute
walk from there, and buses run frequently from the Davis Square
stop to the Tufts campus. See the Tufts website directions link
above for details. Subway and bus schedules can be found at www.mbta.com
