Getting to Boston College
Boston Logan International Airport is the closest airport to Boston College. The most common types of transportation used from the airport, are taxis, hotel shuttle and by the public transportation system called the “T”.
Taxis can be found at the ground transportation area outside each terminal. Fare to downtown Boston will be about $35 and to Boston College about $50 depending on traffic and the time of day. For good service it is customary to tip about "15%" in addition to the fare.
Airport Blue Line Shuttle buses pick up passengers in front of the airline terminals and brings them to the Airport subway stop (known as the "T"). Take the Blue Line subway inbound to Government Center. At Government Center change (go upstairs) to the Boston College Green Line outbound train, i.e. Line B to Boston College. Stay on the train to the end of the line. It will cost $2.50 for a one way trip on the “T”.
Shared Vans and Hotel Shuttles:
Many van companies offer shared van service to area hotels (see the website for details). Although it may take you a little bit longer to arrive at your destination, it is typically much cheaper, especially if you are traveling on your own (around $15 per person). If you are staying in a hotel, call the hotel first to see if they provide a free shuttle or if there is a shuttle company that they recommend.
