Families travelling out of Boston’s Logan Airport during the February school vacation can take advantage of a limited-time special on an already cost-effective and convenient method of getting to and from the airport.
Logan Express operates direct bus service to Logan Airport from Braintree, Framingham, Woburn and Peobody and is currently offering a special discount for February vacation only. Under normal circumstances, it is $7 per day to park at a Logan Express’ lot, plus your bus fare. For travel between February 14 and 26, flat-rate parking of $22 will be offered. Plus, children under 17 can ride for free with an accompanying adult. Considering parking rates at Logan, ever-rising gas prices and the high cost of taxis and car services, the savings can add up quickly.
A family of four from Framingham, for example, heading away for one week, can save $80 to $120. Taking the Logan Express will cost a total of $66 ($22 for parking, $22 per adult roundtrip, $0 per child). Parking at Logan for a week costs a minimum of $108 in the economy lot and $189 in the central/terminal lots. In addition, when parking in the economy lot you need to hop a shuttle bus to the terminal which effectively makes taking the Logan Express just as convenient. Flat-rate taxis from Framingham are approximately $70 each way before tolls and tips, totaling nearly $170 when all is said and done.
If Logan Express does not serve your area, there are similar bus services from various Boston suburbs, Western and Southern Massachusetts, and even from New Hampshire and Rhode Island. Check out Massport’s GetUThere App to see options from your area.
