Effective April 8, Massport's Woburn Logan Express service will move to the Anderson Regional Transportation Center (ARTC) in Woburn. The 34-acre transportation center will provide three times more overnight parking spaces than the current Logan Express facility and features enhanced services and amenities for travelers.
"We look forward to providing our customers with a new, convenient facility and ample parking," said Massport Executive Director and CEO Virginia Buckingham. "The popularity of all three Logan Express services proves that people will leave their cars behind when heading to Logan when provided with an affordable option."
The ARTC is located off Route 93 at exit 37C in Woburn. When the full ARTC opens in May, it will house the Woburn Logan Express, the MBTA commuter rail and parking for Mass Highway's Caravan for Commuters Park & Ride Program.
