As anyone who drives in Boston knows, traffic is a nightmare. If you are headed for Logan Airport, you are usually stressed due to the amount of traffic and possible delays. For those with these issues, Logan Express is for you.
Having lived outside of Boston for several years, I had made the trip back and forth to Logan many times. I refused to drive it myself, having my husband do it instead. I hated the drive and hated putting my husband through it, only to have to turn around and return home. With the airline regulations now, you can't see someone off at the gate, so there's really no reason to go inside if you can avoid it. With the outrageous cost of parking at Logan Airport, you don't really want to park unless you have to.
Logan Express serves four cities in Massachusetts: Framingham, Braintree, Woburn and Peabody. I am only familiar with the Framingham route. On one occasion, my husband was not able to drive me to the airport and I looked for other options. I knew about Logan Express, but had never tried it. I opted to do that.
Logan Express runs large buses from their outer points to Logan Airport and back. They have a bus leaving every 30 minutes, which makes it easy to find a time that works for you. The buses are large, clean and comfortable. Once you buy your ticket, you go to the bus where an employee will ask which airline you are flying, then he loads your luggage into the cargo hold area for you. You simply get on the bus and wait to go.
Once you arrive at Logan, the driver will begin calling out airline names. The bus stops at every terminal and when you get off, the driver gets out and unloads your luggage for you. What can be better than that?
When you return from your trip, you simply get your luggage and go to the waiting area for the bus. You are then given the same nice ride back to where you started. You can park your car and leave it at the terminal (for a fee) or have someone drop you off.
If you are visiting Boston and staying outside the city, you might consider taking the bus and then renting a car or taking the T from that area instead of driving in Boston. You'll save money and have a lot less stress as you begin your journey.
It has been about 5 years since I lived in the Boston area, so I assume the cost has gone up from the $8.00 RT fee they had then. Whatever the cost is, I still believe it's the easiest and best way to get to and from Logan Airport.
