Here's how to travel between Logan Airport and Boston, and cities beyond Boston, by subway train, city bus, intercity bus, airport shuttle van, water shuttle, limo and tax.
 

 

   

Boston's Logan International Airport (BOS) is one of the busiest in the USA, but it is well organized, and has the advantage of being very near the center of the city, as airports go. More...

After you get your bags, look for the signs to buses, taxis, and "limo," and after a few steps you'll see the stops.

Into Boston by Silver Line Bus

MBTA Silver Line buses stop right in front of all Logan Airport terminals, then go via the Seaport District, its hotels, the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, to the South Station Transportation Center which is a half-mile (800 meters) southeast of Boston Common.

Traveling from the airport to the city, the ride is free, and at South Station you can transfer to the Red Line subway trains, and from that line to other lines, for free as well.

From South Station Transportation Center you can take MBTA subway Red Line trains to Park Street Station (for hotels near Boston Common and hotels near Beacon Hill) and to Cambridge hotels, MBTA Commuter Rail trains to towns west and south of Boston, and Amtrak trains to cities and states west and south of Boston.

Into Boston by Blue Line Subway Train

Logan On-Airport Shuttle Buses (run by the Massachusetts Port Authority) run the Logan Airport loop road free of charge. The bus goes to all terminals and to the MBTA Blue Line Airport subway station, where you can take a Blue Line train to Boston.

Trains run every 8 to 12 minutes from 5:30 am to 1 am. The ride takes only 10 minutes to reach the city center, but note that the convenient Government Center station is closed until 2016 to be completely rebuilt. You will have to leave the train at Aquarium, State or Bowdoin stations. State is the next most convenient as it has a connection to the Orange Line, by which you can reach the Red Line and the Green Line. More...

Here's how to pay the fare.

Leave the train at the Aquarium station for hotels near the Aquarium, or leave at Government Center for hotels near Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Connect to Green Line trains for hotels near North Station, hotels near Boston Common, hotels near Beacon Hill, hotels in the Theater District, and hotels in Back Bay.

Into Boston by Water Shuttle

The Logan Airport Dock serves water shuttles between Logan Airport and Rowe's Wharf (map), at the Boston Harbor Hotel on Atlantic Avenue in Boston (a voyage of less than 10 minutes); and the towns of Quincy and Hull; and water taxis to 15 other docks along the Boston waterfront. More...

Trips to Rowe's Wharf run every 15 minutes between 6 am and 8 pm on weekdays, every half hour from noon to 8pm on Sundays and holidays. From Rowe's Wharf it's only a few blocks to South Station Transportation Center's Amtrak and Commuter Rail train, Red Line subway, and intercity bus stations.

Into Boston by Taxi

A taxi from Logan Airport to downtown Boston will cost between $25 and $45 for the ride, plus tunnel toll, plus airport fee, plus excess baggage charge (if any), plus tip. Figure $35 to $60 altogether, depending on how far you travel.
