Massport Executive Director and CEO Virginia Buckingham today announced that Massport again will slash transportation fares in half during the December holidays. From December 18 through January 1, round trip tickets will be half-price on Logan Express, Logan Direct and the Airport Water Shuttle.
"More than 60,000 travelers used public transportation to get to and from Logan during the Thanksgiving holiday," said Buckingham. "This year we will slash fares once again to encourage travelers to leave their cars at home and take the easy way to Logan."
The following services will be available with reduced rates:
- Logan Express (kiss and ride only) - bus service from Braintree, Framingham and Woburn
- Logan Direct - direct bus service from Hyannis, Sagamore, Plymouth and Rockland
- Airport Water Shuttle - Logan to Rowes Wharf.
The combination of holiday travel and Boston-area students heading home for winter-break makes the month of December a peak period for Logan's roadways, terminals and parking garages.
"We are confident that once people experience how easy it is to use one of these services they will become repeat customers," said Buckingham.
In order to take advantage of the Logan Express round trip discount, passengers must be dropped-off at the Logan Express site (kiss & ride), where they will receive a coupon for half-off a round trip fare. Massport will honor the tickets of travelers who purchase round-trip tickets but return after the November 27th cut-off date on the discount.
The incentive was offered as a pilot program last year, as part of a commitment Buckingham made to the residents of East Boston to reduce the number of automobiles on community streets.
