We highly recommend using Boston’s public transit system, the MBTA, to get to Copley Square. It’s easy, inexpensive, and best of all, you can spend your travel time doing what you do best: reading!

Take the “T” to the Copley stop on the Green Line and exit onto Copley Square (and the Boston Book Festival!). For detailed directions, go to the MBTA “Trip Planner.” Enter “Copley Station” as your end address.

From the commuter rail (Framingham/Worcester line, Needham line, Franklin line, and Providence/Stoughton line), get off at the Back Bay Station. Walk 0.1 miles northeast along Dartmouth Street toward Huntington Avenue.
