I just got back from MCI Shirley. They're all in the same complex/lot really. you should be able to get a taxi since they have parking lots. Most people drove. I heard a guard telling one lady she had to go to another building (her guy was either in SBCC or the Min facility). He was telling her to drive her car so safe to say they had a lot by their building also. I can ask my guy. He's in the Med facility but just came from SBCC and his mother used to visit him regularly there and I know for a fact she drove. For the vehicle registration part, I left it blank since I had rented a car (I'm from out of state also). They didn't give me any problems about leaving it blank. They probably saw I was from out of town and figured.
I was super nervous when I went to visit thinking I wouldn't get in for some reason but surprisingly it was very easy. I hope your trip is painless as well.

I think they have a pretty big car park, I could even ask the taxi to drop me off just outside the gate to solve any problems! I think I am freaking out since I want this visit to be perfect!! I don't want anything to go wrong!
Is it a far trip for you to get to visit? What are the visits like? I hope you don't mind me askin yes if you could ask your man I would appreciate that so much!!
It's 1100 miles. A 3 hour plane ride. I went to the Med facility and it was fine. The guards were real laxed. You can stay up to 8 hours and since I came so far of course I stayed 8 hours both Fri and Sat. You sit across from each other with nothing in between so it's very intimate. I can ask my guy how visits go at SBCC. I never visited while he was there. I will respond tonight after i talk to him.
Please don't ever feel the need to apologize for asking questions.I am glad you found us and are getting your questions answered. That is what we are here for. Great job Massachusetts peeps! Keep it up!
