Shuttle Offered to Logan

The public commute from Logan International Airport to the Back Bay has grown considerably easier since the launch of shuttle-bus service between the two destinations earlier this spring.

As part of a two-year pilot program, Massport is now offering service between the airport Hynes Convention Center and the Copley MBTA Station on Boylston Street seven days a week, every 20 minutes starting at 5 a.m. until 9 p.m. from Back Bay and 6 a.m. until 10 p.m. from the airport. Buses stop at each airport terminal on the departure level and pick-up passengers on the arrivals level. The fare is $5 one way, payable with a credit or debit card or free for riders with a valid MBTA pass.

Massport spokesman Matt Brelis said ridership is currently at about 500 a day, but that number is expected to climb considerably with the two-year closure of the Government Center MBTA station and as more commuters learn of the pilot program.

Brelis added that 40 percent of Logan’s passengers choose a bus, public transit, taxi or shared van to reach the airport, ranking it first among airports nationally for high-occupancy vehicle use.

    Great service. Massport is good at adding the service but terrible at the treatment of employees. Employees at Logan Airport are paid minimum wage, receive no benefits and are threatened with dismissal if they start talking about organizing. Please Massport. Have a heart.
