To take the bus from the Boston - Logan Airport to Cape Cod
If you are going to take the bus from the Boston – Logan Airport to Cape Cod, look for the bus company called Plymouth Brockton sometimes referred to as P&B. The fee is $26 CASH one-way and $47 round-trip. Weekdays between 7:00 am - 3:30 pm a bus leaves the airport every 30 minutes, then at 4:30 pm, 5:30 pm, 6:30 pm and 8:30 pm. Check the website for more information http://www.p-b.com/Sched-Logan.html

At the Logan Airport buses depart each airline terminal on the lower level OUTSIDE the BAGGAGE CLAIM areas, at the sign that reads "Scheduled Buses" - in the ORANGE zone. Buses begin their trip through the airport at Terminal A, then stop at each terminal as they progress through the airport, so depending on your terminal, the bus may be a few minutes later than the time posted on the schedule. Board the bus with that shows Hyannis on the front (Hyannis is the last stop).

Once on the Cape – get off the bus at the BARNSTABLE stop (it is near the Burger King). The hotel is providing one shuttle from the bus stop to the hotel. The shuttle is scheduled to leave the Barnstable bus stop at 5:15. If you arrive earlier in the day or after the shuttle departs - call Bob Bertrand (508-280-3375) and he will try to arrange a volunteer to pick you up.
