Boston Offers Free Airport Transportation

Boston is now offering free public transportation between its downtown area and its airport.To help alleviate traffic and parking congestion, the buses going between Boston’s South Street Station and Logan Airport will now be free. It used to cost $2.

Many cities in the U.S. are either inaugurating or upgrading public transportation from downtown to their airports. Boston, however, is the first one to make if free. Wouldn’t it be nice if other cities followed suit.

Free transport to airports would be great. It currently costs $15 to get from Sydney, Australia to the international airport via train. What a rip off. $2 would be a luxury!

@Di, you think that's bad? If only. In Melbourne it's $17 for an overcrowded Skybus, where you can stand while you're being advertised at by the TV in the bus.

Or you could take the train to Essendon Station then the 478 bus to the bus stop at the airport, which is conveniently situated half a kilometre from the terminals themselves.That costs only $5.54 plus the $6 it costs to buy the new amazing smartcard thing ("myki").

Parking monopoly, much?

If you want a real laugh, check out the weekday timetable for the 478 bus at ptv.vic.gov.au . There are other buses that go from Sunbury and Broadmeadows, but you have to be really, REALLY dedicated to go that way.

At least you can take public transportation to the airport. If I ever had a flight where I came in or left on Sunday, I had to park my car, because the trains to downtown Dallas weren't operating. Stupid religious BS.
I'm so glad I moved out of Dallas, TX.
