Public transportation around Boston is inexpensive and convenient. It is run by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority.
Riders on the subway should take the Green Line, Train D "Riverside" (avoid Train E, as it does not stop at the Hynes) to the "Hynes Convention Center" station. Then walk down Massachusetts Avenue, over the Massachusetts Turnpike, turn left on Boylston St., and on to the Hynes. Signs are posted to guide you from the train stop to the convention center. Buses 1 and 55 also share this destination.
Alternately, you could take the Green Line to the "Copley" station, then walk down Boylston St., away from Copley Square, towards the Hynes Convention Center. Buses 9, 10, 39, and 55 also share this destination.

Express buses from outside cities (e.g. 502 and 503) are also available. A complete map of the Boston subway can be found at http://www.mbta.com/schedules_and_maps/subway.
Each trip on the Subway cost $2 (or $1.70 when pre-purchased on a CharlieCard) and allows travel anywhere in the Subway system. A one-ride ticket includes one free transfer to Local Bus. Consider purchasing a day or week pass. Day passes cost $9 and allow unlimited travel on Subway, Local Bus, Commuter Rail Zone 1A, and the Inner-Harbor Ferry. Week passes cost $15, are good for 7 days, and provide the same services as a day pass.
Children 11 years old and younger can ride for free with a paid adult. Junior High and High-School students ride for $0.85 per ride.
