Getting to Logan Airport

Framingham residents do have several options for getting to Logan International Airport. Here's a look at the four possible options. I also include the costs and the benefits of each option.

In these options, I am comparing a party of 3, 2-Adults and 1 child on a typical 7-day vacation.

Using Logan Express

Total Airport Trip Cost: $93

You need to get to Logan Express really early to get the bus and make it to the airport. This is very popular during peak travel times. The overflow lot is near Kohls.

The first inbound service is 3 am and the last outbound service is 1:15 am (except Saturdays at 12:15 am). The service runs every half hour on weekdays and Sundays after 1 pm, and every hour on Saturdays and Sunday mornings.

You may be better off catching a taxi to Logan Express to save money.

Cost Breakdown
Cost of Parking at Logan Express:$7 a day
Cost of Bus Trip:$22 Round Trip

Taking the MBTA Commuter Rail

Total Airport Trip Cost: $42.50

While this might be the cheapest option, it involves traveling on multiple public transportation vehicles (Train and Bus). This would not be a good option if you have a lot of luggage or children.

This would be a good option if your traveling for a long period.

Cost Breakdown
Commuter Rail Ticket:$16.50 Round Trip (Children don't need a ticket)
Cost Silver Line:$2.75 (Per Person) to the airport. The trip is Free from Logan to South Station.

Driving and Parking at Logan International Airport

Total Airport Trip Cost: $192.90

This is the most expensive option. However, gives you the most control on getting to/from the airport. The driver can always drop off the passengers and the luggage at curbside and then park the car in the long-term lot.

Always check to see the status of the long-term lot. If there is an overflow lot, it may be closer to the terminals.

Cost Breakdown
Cost of Parking at Logan (Long Term Lot):$26 a day
Cost of Tolls:$3.70 (one-way) $3.50 (Ted Williams Tunnel) $10.90

Taxi to/from Logan International Airport

Total Airport Trip Cost: $126+ Tip

This would be a way to save money over parking at the long-term lot - especially for longer trips. Make sure to call Tommy Taxi Cab in advance so there is a car available for you.

Cost Breakdown (Tommy Taxi)
Cost of Getting to Logan:$62
Cost of to getting to Framingham:$64
