Airport Station at Boston Logan International Airport

While many cities offer dedicated train service to and from airports – the Heathrow Express in London and the Leonardo Express in Rome come to mind – it’s nonetheless possible to take the train to and from the airport in a straightforward manner in other cities as well.

One such city is Boston, where the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority offers several such options.

Indeed, one possibility is actually free: the Silver Line, which in reality is not a train but a bus, is free to and from Logan to South Station, where travelers can connect to the Red Line as well as to Amtrak trains and commuter lines.  If you don’t want to take the bus or need to head to a location downtown, the Blue Line runs directly to Airport Station, the airport’s own metro station.

On a recent trip to Boston, I took the T – the city’s rapid transit system – from Boston Logan International Airport to the city center at the suggestion of our editorial director, Jonathan Spira, and found it a well organized affair.

The Blue Line terminates at the appropriately enough named Airport Station, which is accessible via free shuttles from all terminals. The shuttle leaves from clearly marked stops at each terminal and Shuttle Bus 22, the one serving my terminal, arrived after perhaps a two–minute wait. (They run every five minutes, on average.)

The Massport shuttle bus featured low floors for easy boarding, large luggage racks, and was wheelchair lift-equipped. Once on board, the ride to Airport Station took approximately 12 minutes.
