actually now there is a new Silver Line, which takes you from South Station, past where GRcon is being held, to Logan Airport.

And, I'll echo, that this works vice-versa too.  You can take a free MBTA bus from any Logan Airport Terminal to the MBTA Airport Blue Line stop, then the MBTA Blue Line back into Boston, and switch to other MBTA Lines as needed from there.  I believe it is still the case that you pay at the MBTA Airport stop, once, and then can transfer internal to the train MBTA as needed (except maybe parts of the MBTA Green Line [the parts which are above ground]).

To the best of my memory, there is no MBTA stop on the side of the channel where GRCon 2013 is located.  The easiest, as mentioned before, is South Station (on the Red Line), which is at the corner of Atlantic and Summer.  Arriving at this Station, you would exit the Station and walk (roughly south-east) across the Summer St Bridge to 281 Summer.  Or, I'm sure there is a MBTA Bus one can take in inclement weather (for an extra fee, probably, or maybe a transfer; I never really figured out how to do transfers when I lived in Boston); or a taxi, though that's kinda silly for such a short distance. - MLD
