New! BMC Campus Redesign   
Transportation Information 

Getting to Boston Medical Center

Boston Medical Center is conveniently located off of Route 93 in Boston's Historic South End. We are a short distance from Victorian brick row houses listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Revitalized in the 1960s, the South End is now home to ethnically diverse families, fine restaurants, a thriving arts community, parks and playgrounds.

The medical campus is situated across several city blocks between Harrison Avenue and Albany Street and Massachusetts Avenue and East Newton Street. View Campus Map

We are easily accessible by car, bus, free shuttle bus, subway or  bicycle, and are approximately six miles from Logan Airport.
