Located at 1 Harborside Drive on the east side of the city of Boston, Logan International Airport (BOS) is the busiest airport in New England. A record 31.6 million passengers traveled through Logan Airport in 2014. Here are your best options for getting to New England's busiest airport.

By Car

To reach Logan from points west and south, follow the Massachusetts Turnpike (I-90 East) through the Ted Williams Tunnel to exit 26. From the north, follow Route I-93 South to exit 24B for the Callahan Tunnel and Route 1A North toward Logan.

If you're coming into Boston by flight, thirteen rental car companies operate at or near Logan International Airport. Keep in mind that driving into Boston can be tricky, and parking is expensive, so opt for public transportation unless you need a car for trips outside the city.

Use Public Transportation

The Logan Shuttle offers free transportation between airport terminals. It also connects terminals with the airport's subway station and the Water Transportation Terminal.

  • By subway/the T: Logan Airport is a stop on the MBTA Blue Line.
  • By water taxi/ferry: Boat service to downtown Boston and to Quincy and Hull on the South Shore is provided by the MBTA Inner Harbor Ferry or Commuter Boat, as well as by City Water Taxi and Rowes Wharf Water Transporter.
  • By city bus: The MBTA's free, handicapped-accessible Silver Line SL1 bus service connects Logan Airport with Boston's South Station in the Financial District, where other bus and train connections can be made.

Take the Airport Shuttle

  • Logan Express has shuttle bus locations with secure lots in Braintree to the south, Framingham to the west, and Peabody and Woburn to the north. Park your car outside the city, and take advantage of regularly scheduled shuttle departures for the airline terminals at Logan.
  • Logan Direct offers shuttle connections between Logan Airport and the southern Massachusetts towns of Rockland, Plymouth, Sagamore, Barnstable, and Hyannis. Service is also available from the Outer Cape via a connection in Hyannis.
