Getting To Boston

Getting to Boston is easy, whether you're approaching by air, train, bus or car. Here are a few suggestions from the official City of Boston Web site.

By Car
There are three main routes into Boston:
I-90 (Massachusetts Turnpike) from the west
I-95 from the north and south
I-93 from the north and south

By Bus
Several bus and van companies offer bus service to and from Boston. Various bus lines arrive and depart from South Station.

By Train
Amtrak has frequent train service to Boston from New York and other points in the Northeast Corridor. The trip from New York takes about 3.5 hours on Acela Express trains and about four hours on other trains.

Amtrak has three Boston stops.

Route 128 is about 12 miles from downtown and is a good place to get off if you are visiting the western or southern suburbs.

Back Bay Station is in the Back Bay, convenient to the hotels in the Back Bay and the South End and the Orange Line subway.

The final stop is South Station, near the financial district and the Red Line subway. It is convenient for the theater district and hotels along the waterfront.

By Plane
Numerous airlines fly into and out of Logan International Airport. Once you land, you can pick up a rental car or take a cab to your hotel. You even have the option of taking an MBTA train into downtown and the neighboring areas. Just catch a ride on the free Massport shuttle bus to the Blue Line's airport subway stop.
