The Perrimon Lab can easily be reached by the MBTA, Boston's subway system. Two branches service the Longwood Medical Area, providing transportation to areas within walking distance of the lab.

In addition, another branch provides service to Logan International Airport. One only needs to change trains once to get from Logan to the Longwood Medical Area.

This close-up map shows the route from Logan Airport to Longwood station on the MBTA.
