How to Get to Boskone

By Car — The Sheraton Framingham is on Route 9 west at the Framingham exit (exit 12) of the Mass Pike (Interstate 90), about halfway between I-495 and Route 128 (I-95). The hotel is a castle (you can't miss it! – trust us!), clearly visible from both the Pike and Route 9. Take the Mass Pike to Exit 12 (Framingham) and bear left after the tolls onto Route 9 west. Drive 150 yards to the Sheraton on the right. Parking is free!

By Air — if you fly into Boston's Logan Airport: from any terminal at Logan take the Logan Express to Framingham. (There are Logan Express buses to other destinations, so be sure you get on the right one.) It costs $9 one-way ($16 round trip); accompanied children under 12 are free; you pay at the Framingham end. The ride takes about 30-45 minutes. It leaves the airport every half-hour during peak travel; the Saturday schedule is hourly. The last bus leaves the airport at midnight. For information, phone (800) 23LOGAN at any time for details, or see Once you are at the Framingham terminal, use the Shuttle Bus, below, to get to the hotel. Failing that, we suggest you take a taxi. The Logan Express Framingham terminal offers an enclosed waiting room, phones, and lists of taxi companies. It is next to Shoppers' World, just off Route 30.

Worcester Airport Limo, (800) 660-0992, provides transportation from Logan directly to the Sheraton at $24 per person, one way. Reservations are strongly recommended; 48 hours notice is requested. Knight's Limo Service is another company serving Logan, (800) 822-5456, which costs $25 per person. Reservations are strongly recommended; 48-hour notice is requested.

Amtrak — Framingham has a twice-a-day Amtrak service from New York. The station is in downtown Framingham (officially Framingham Junction) about five miles from the hotel. We recommend taking a taxi from there to the hotel (taxi cost is about $15). The route 128 terminal (about 15 miles from the hotel) has Amtrak trains from points east and west which run several times a day, seven days a week. Call 800-USA-RAIL or your local Amtrak office for schedule and ticketing information, or see

Commuter Rail — Framingham has about 20 daily commuter rail trains on weekdays. Trains leave from Boston's South Station. The cost is $4 one way. In Framingham, the station is about five miles from the hotel. We recommend taking a taxi to the Sheraton (cost is about $15). Call MBTA Commuter Rail at (617) 222-3200, (800) 392-6100, and hearing-impaired (TDD) 222-5246 for schedules, or surf to:

Bus from Boston — You can get to Framingham from Boston from the bus terminal at South Station. The bus runs every 2 hours on Friday and somewhat less frequently on Saturday and Sunday. The fare is $7 each way ($6 for a few of the scheduled buses). Call Peter Pan Bus Lines, (800) 343-9999, for schedule and ticketing information, or see See below for Shuttle Bus information.

Shuttle Bus — Boskone will have a shuttle bus running between the Sheraton and the Framingham Logan Express bus terminal next to Shoppers' World on the Route 30 side.
