Best way to get to Boston

Hi there,

We're coming back on the Martha's Vineyard ferry into New Bedford and need to get to Boston Logan airport. What is the best way to get there? Is there a bus or train that we can take?

I think the bus is the best was... It is called Dattco and you can catch it downtown. It's a litte walk from the Ferry but not to bad.

Peter Pan has bus service out of NB but you would have to check their schedule to see when they have a bus leaving from the downtown terminal. The terminal is within walking distance from the docks. It is all uphill though but not bad at all. I mention that just in case there are health issues. There is no commuter rail from NB to Boston. (We've been waiting forever). The closest MBTA stop is in Lakeville , MA. Check their schedule because I think they have limited service in the evening and on weekends.

You would be better off taking a Steamship Authority ferry into Woods Hole, and picking up a Peter Pan bus right at the terminal to Logan. It's also a much cheper/frequent ferry service than out of New Bedford.
