Here’s how to reach Clark University on your own: 

From Boston

The easiest way to get to Clark is to fly into Logan International Airport in Boston.  Take a shared van service from the airport to Clark.  We recommend two companies: 

Worcester Airport Limo

Knights Airport Limousine


The cost is about $50.00. Please book at least 48 hours in advance and provide them with the number of the flight that brings you to Boston and the date and time of your arrival.  Prepay by credit card or pay by cash when you board the van. Upon arrival in Boston, pick up your luggage, exit the terminal and cross the street.   Look for the sign that says, “Shared Van ”.

From New York City

Take a bus from the Port authority Terminal in NYC.  Here are the two bus lines that we recommend: 

Peter Pan Bus
Greyhound Bus Line

The price will be about $40.00 and will take about 4 hours.  Upon arrival at the Worcester Bus Terminal, we suggest you take a taxi to the Clark campus. Taxi services are available from Red Cab or Yellow Cab of Worcester at a cost of approximately $10.00.
