International Conference on Complex Systems (ICCS2002)

TRANSPORTATION

 

AIRPORTS AND DISTANCES:

Boston's Logan International Airport is the primary airport for the area (approximately 40 min drive from the Sheraton Nashua depending on traffic); however, the Manchester New Hampshire Airport, which is serviced by fewer airlines, can also be used (it is approximately 1/2 hour drive from the Sheraton Nashua).

 

LOCAL DIRECTIONS:

From Boston: Take Interstate 93 north to Interstate 495 south to Route 3 north. Just across the border into New Hampshire is Exit 1. Left at end of exit ramp and follow signs (second quick right) to the Sheraton Nashua hotel.

From Logan Airport: Follow signs to Boston through the Sumner tunnel. Immediately after the tunnel take Interstate 93 North and follow the directions from Boston.

 

SHARED VAN SERVICE: AIRPORT TO THE SHERATON NASHUA HOTEL:

Flight Line Inc. Airport Express Service will provide shared vans between either Logan or Manchester airports and the hotel.

Airport to hotel transportation rates for the conference are payable in cash or traveler's checks ONLY (unless paid by credit card in advance) and gratuity is not included in price. Following is the current individual rate (subject to change):

$44 (one way) 4am-11pm

$55 (one way) 11pm-4am

Reservations should be made at least 24 hours in advance with Flight Line Inc.:tel: (800)245-2525; or (603)893-8254, or online at https://hudsonltd.com/cgi-bin/flt1/res

 

AMTRAK TRAIN STATION ("SOUTH STATION")

If you prefer to arrive by train rather than plane to Boston: AMTRAK trains arrive in Boston's MBTA South Station from the south and west of the United States. AMTRAK tel: (800) 872-7245.

There is no convenient train from Boston to Nashua, NH. Thus, from South Station, we recommend to take a Taxi to the nearby Logan Airport (Fare: approximately $10) and then to use Flight Line Inc. (as indicated above) to the hotel. The MBTA (Boston's local train/trolley) also runs from South Station to Logan Airport (Fare: $1.00).
