Getting To Boston: Planes, Trains & Automobiles
Logan Airport, Boston Trains and Buses
Boston Logan International Airport
If you’re flying into Boston, you’ll land at Boston’s Logan International Airport.
The airport is quite conveniently located just a few miles from the city. That said, it can still take a while to get downtown depending on the mode of transportation you choose to use. Check out our Logan Airport transportation page to learn about your options. Here you can find both traditional kinds of transport and information about ride-sharing/transportation network companies like Uber and Lyft.
If you have family or friends coming to pick you up, or Boston is your base and you need long-term airport parking, you can learn about Logan Airport parking options here. FYI, they have a “cell phone parking lot” so people can minimize gas emissions as well as save on parking fees when they’re waiting for their guests to arrive.

Taking the train can be a relaxing Boston transportation option to start your vacation. Prices may not be any better than flying, but the trains do come right into downtown Boston.
Here’s some information on the various Boston Train lines, schedules and stations.
If you’re looking for specific information on one of the train stations, here are direct links to each of the three Boston train stations:
There are loads of buses each day travelling in and out of Boston.
Alternatively, these days, the cheapest option tends to be taking a Chinatown Bus. The Chinatown buses now run out of South Station (which is not in Chinatown) as do all regularly scheduled intercity buses. And, they often have a younger crowd of travelers given the style of transportation.
