TRANSIT FLY Review: Boston Logan International Airport offers a variety of
good Airport Transportation options that allow passengers from almost every
part of the metropolitan area to access its Terminals. From the "T" (Subway)
Blue Line that serves the Airport stop, to the Silver Line Express Bus that takes
passengers directly from Commuter Rail Trains at South Station, to Airport
Ferry Shuttles serving the Downtown area, Logan Airport offers many transit
methods ensuring that passengers almost never have to drive (unless they want
to). This variety of frequent and inexpensive transit options makes Logan Airport
one of our favorites here at Transit Fly.
