A central location between two bustling metropolises opens new doors for businesses within the Town of Mansfield, providing access to a workforce of over 6.5 million within an hour commute. Boston, Massachusetts’ capital and largest city, is located 35 miles from Mansfield, while Providence, the capital of Rhode Island, is a mere 25 miles from the town. Both capitals offer a major airport, numerous educational institutions, and over half a million people—prospects, future clients, and employees.
- There are 31 colleges and universities in Boston, placing Mansfield within reach of over 136,000 highly educated graduates who will be searching for post-college careers. Rhode Island is home to 12 accredited colleges, including two research universities.
- Boston is home to the Boston Logan International Airport, where over 40 airlines fly around the clock to over 100 destinations as New England’s main airport. T.F. Green International Airport is located just six miles south of Providence and is host to approximately 120 nonstop flights each day. Awarded the “4th Best Airport in the U.S.” in the Condé Nast Traveler 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards, T.F. Green is a popular choice for both domestic and international travelers. Two international airports within proximity to Mansfield allow seamless access for executives, investors, and other stakeholders to visit onsite.
- Mansfield’s juxtaposition to both cities can help our local business partners attract and retain talent. Many workers who commute to the city from surrounding towns may be pleased with the concept of shorter travel times, made simpler by access to our MBTA commuter rail, bus system, and convenient highway access.
- Another benefit of choosing a central location in a city suburb is less congestion and easier access for suppliers, lower crime rates, and alleviated parking concerns. With the robust transportation system Mansfield has to offer, businesses and employees get the best of both worlds within Mansfield.
