The City Water Taxi, Boston Harbor's only on-call water shuttle, is back in operation as the start of their new season begins this week. Diligently delivering passengers, the City Water Taxi, with its familiar green canopies has been a landmark in these waters since 1996.
As part of a growing transportation network, the City Water Taxi is one of many inner and outer harbor vessels carrying commuters and visitors to points around Boston.
It is one of three services making calls at Logan Airport and joins the Airport Water Shuttle and the Harbor Express in transporting passengers to and from the airport.
This year, the City Water Taxi has increased its fleet from four vessels to five and its on- water call stops from 12 to 13. Passengers can hop aboard at any of the following locations: Logan Aiport/Harborside Hyatt; Fleet Pavilion; World Trade Center; Anthony's at Pier 4, Fan Pier/U.S. Court House; The Barking Crab Restaurant, Museum Wharf; Long Wharf Marriott; Lewis Wharf; Burrows Wharf; North Station/Fleet Center; Charlestown Navy Yard; USS Constitution.
"Traveling by water to or from the airport is easy and convenient and allows passengers to enjoy Boston's historic harbor," said Massport Executive Director and CEO, Thomas J. Kinton, Jr.
At Logan Airport, shuttle buses make regular stops at the water dock, all airport terminals and the MBTA station.
From the Logan dock, the City Water Taxi connects with 13 landings in the harbor and costs $10.00 to downtown locations and $15.00 to Charlestown. The Airport Water Shuttle departs every 20 minutes taking passengers to Rowes Wharf and the Harbor Express serves the South Shore from Quincy's Fore River Shipyard making direct connections between Logan Airport and Long Wharf.
