Public Transportation

Remember that you will need transportation to and from the conference location, your hotel, restaurants, and attractions.

ASGA recommends that you save money while in Boston by using public transportation! Boston is a very commuter-friendly city. You can easily, and inexpensively, take public transportation from the airport to your hotel and to sight-seeing. At your hotel, you can easily walk to restaurants, tourist attractions, and shopping.

The subway and bus routes serving Boston Logan International Airport are operated by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (better known as the MBTA or the “T”). There are two ways to get to your hotel from Boston Logan:

Silver Line
Take the “Silver Line” ($2.00) to the “South Station”. Then take the “Redline” subway to the “Park Street Station.” Then take the “Green C” to Hawes Street. You can then walk to the hotel or to the conference location. MBTA’s interactive subway map. Total fee per person is $2.10 each way.

Blue Line
Take the free Massport shuttle bus to the “Airport Station.” Then take the “Blueline” ($2.00) to “Government Center.” Then take “Green C” to Hawes Street. Total fee per person is $2.10 each way.

Walk from Hotel to Conference Location

You can walk (about 10 minutes) to the conference location if you stay at the Wheelock College residence halls or at the Holiday Inn Boston-Brookline (about 12 minutes).

Taxis

Boston taxis are available at Logan terminals 24 hours a day. All areas within a 12-mile radius of downtown Boston are charged a metered rate. Beyond the 12-mile radius the charge is a flat rate. Metered-rates from Logan to the Boston-area hotels range from approximately $25 to $50 (one to four passengers).

All fares leaving Logan Airport are charged a $2.25 airport fee. Travel through the harbor tunnels will cost an additional $5.25 toll fee. It is recommended that you ask the taxi driver for a receipt showing the driver’s name, the taxi company, the amount paid, and the medallion number.
