Peter Pan bus from Boston airport

I will be flying into Boston from the UK on 21st May - arriving at 17:35, then I plan to get the Peter Pan bus to Providence, RI where friends an meet me.

Will I have time to get the bus at 19:30 (after going through immigration etc).

Is the bus stop easy to find?

Do I need to book the bus in advance and if so, can I book it from the UK? - I had a look at the Peter Pan website, but there wasn't clear (at least to me!) answers to these questions.

I am particularly interested in hearing about other people's experiences.

If your plane arrives on time, you should be fine. I don't believe you need to book in advance on a non-holiday weekend. There is a bus stop noted outside each Terminal, although you will need to look for it. If for some reason you don't make it, there are trains from South Station to Providence. The Silver Line Bus goes from the Terminals to South Station. See mbta.com for the rail schedule for the Providence trains.

The commuter rail train would be much more enjoyable than the bus. You should be able to make the 6:50 or 8:10 train easily. Silver Line to South Station and then right onto the commuter rail train.

But the bus is right outside baggage claim and one can just jump right on Diva. That might be best after a long flight. And Alan, doesn't the bus come every 1/2 hour?

Peter Pan to Providence is roughly every two hours, but it does pickup right outside the Logan Terminals. However, it costs about twice as much. All kinds of things to balance here.
