Boston Transportation


Boston Transportation - Boston’s Airport is Logan International. Once arriving at Logan, you will need to decide on transportation from the airport. The “T” is the most convenient and affordable to get into Boston city. The Blue Line and the Silver Line has stops at Logan airport, and the Blue Line even provides a free shuttle to and from your terminal. Taxi service is also available, however typically more expensive. Rental cars are also available at the airport, however if you choose to drive, be prepared for delays and fairly heavy traffic.

The Boston “T”, one of the oldest subway systems in the United States, is the most convenient. The T stops at almost every area of the city as well as Cambridge, and even has several routes to the suburbs.

The Boston subway rates are either one ticket per ride, or a reasonably priced monthly pass. There are also daily and weekly unlimited passes, highly recommended for visitors who intend to use the subway often during their visit. Senior citizens and students receive significant discounts, and children under 11 ride free. “CharlieCards” can be ordered online at www.mbta.com.

Wherever the subway doesn’t go, the buses will take you. The bus system also uses the “Charlie Card” system, so if you’ve purchased yours ahead of time online, then you are prepared to use both transportation systems.

Taxi service is available from the airport as well as anywhere throughout the city. Rates are higher than most other forms of transportation, however if you’re not sure how to get where you’re going – a taxi is the easiest way the get there. Simply provide the driver the address and you’re off.

Boston is a beautiful city to explore on foot, especially in the summertime when there are busy sidewalk cafes, outdoor concerts, and harbor cruises. Horse-drawn carriage rides are offered throughout the city. Boston is not a huge city, so it isn’t impossible to get around on foot, just make sure to obtain a good guide map first, as the streets can be somewhat confusing.

Make sure to print all of the areas you would like to visit – and explore the stunning city of Boston on foot.
