Getting to Boston


Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS) is the city’s main air transport hub. Your best bet for getting into town from Logan: Take public transportation. While taxis are widely available, both the Silver Line rapid transit bus and Blue Line subway are convenient and cheaper. Providence, RI’s T.F. Green International Airport (PVD) is 50 miles and about a one-hour drive away.


All major U.S. carriers – United, Continental, American, Delta, JetBlue, Southwest and US Airways – and a wide range of international carriers, including Aer Lingus, Air Canada, Air France, Lufthansa and British Airways, serve BOS.

Flight Times

Boston is located a little over an hour from New York City; 2-3 hours from most other East Coast cities; less than 3 hours from Chicago; and about 6 hours from the West Coast.

Ground Transportation

With airfare costs on the rise, ground transportation can often be the most cost-efficient way of getting to Boston. Amtrak runs to several stations in Boston, including South Station, North Station, and Back Bay. The most established bus line that runs to Boston is Greyhound, which drops off at South Station. From New York, there are also a number of start-up bus lines that run to Boston, including the no-frills, Chinatown bus company of Fung Wah, which drops travelers off at South Station for as little as $15 one way. Limoliner is an über-spacious, high-end bus service which transports guests from the Hilton in New York to the Hilton in Back Bay; the $49 one-way fare includes complimentary extras such as fresh-squeezed orange juice, wine, WiFi, and outlet plugs. It’s about 4 hours and 20 minutes to Boston from New York City.
