From therethe station, it is a relatively short walk down Main Street (passing the Kendall Hotel on your left, walking away from Chipotle).

For walking directions via Google Maps, visit On the map link above, the Kendall/MIT stop is just outside building E38. Parking is also available at the terminal stations on the red line - the easiest to reach if you are coming from outside Boston is probably Alewife in Arlington.
