Parking/ T (subway) info:

There are some lots nearby that can be around $20 a day. There's the MIT West garage on Vassar St but I need to double check what time they close.

My contact at MIT said the best way to save money is to take the Red Line T in from the Alewife stop to the Kendall/MIT stop that way the garage is only like $5 a day... BTW the exact door you want to come in for GUTS is 55 Vassar St

Directions from the Red Line:

Kendall/MIT Station

Head west on Main St toward Ames St
About 4 mins

total 0.2 mi

Turn left onto Vassar St
Destination will be on the right
About 5 mins
