The nearest airport is Boston's Logan Airport. Once you arrive in Boston, you may may choose to use a shuttle van service or take the train. There is no direct line to Brandeis, but if you want to take the train we recommend: Silver Line to South Station, where you will switch to the Red Line (inbound) and get off at the Porter Square Stop. From here you can take the commuter rail (Fitchburg/South Acton line, see above) to the Brandeis Roberts Station.
