When making flight arrangements, please remember that Logan International Airport in Boston, MA, is the closest airport to Bentley.
Getting to Bentley:
Bentley recommends an airport pickup service for you at Logan Airport through Ultimate Livery and Shuttle. This service is optional, and will cost you approximately $48 USD (possibly less if shared with other students). A representative from Ultimate Livery will meet you at the airport and bring you to Bentley. Ultimate Livery is familiar with Bentley's campus and their prices are reasonable.
Ultimate Livery and Shuttle (operated by Go Shuttle):
Select "Bentley College" from the menu, and select "Student Center" as the drop-off destination.
