Event Planning Guide

Public Transportation
Since the layout of its streets resembles that of an old European city, Boston can seem like a confusing maze to those who are unfamiliar. That’s why driving is frowned upon and walking is highly encouraged. Plus, the city’s public transit system, especially the subway, makes it easy to get around.
Airport Information
Boston Logan International Airport (BOS)
Located just three miles from downtown Boston, Logan International Airport boasts nonstop international service from 56 destinations and nonstop domestic service from 77 destinations. It’s accessible via the city’s subway system (take the Blue Line directly to downtown Boston from the airport), and the Logan Express bus offers service from the Back Bay’s Copley Square and the Hynes Convention Center. Taxis and ride-sharing services are also available. All of the terminals include restaurants, shopping, and amenities, and there are three hotels on the airport premises.
Public Transportation
Walking: Most tourist attractions in Boston can be explored on foot, thanks to a downtown area that’s compact and easy to navigate. Just remember to wear shoes that are comfortable for walking on cobblestone streets.
Bus: Almost 200 bus routes operate throughout the city, but the network can be a bit more complicated to figure out than the subway. Also, take note that while the Silver Line is classified as a subway route, it is considered part of the bus system.
Rail: The city’s subway system is composed of five color-coded rail lines (Red, Orange, Green, Blue, and Silver). When locals say the “T,” they are usually referring to the subway, although the other modes of mass transit are technically part of the “T” as well. Subway directions are marked "inbound" and "outbound," along with the last stop on that particular line. "Inbound" means going toward the center of Boston, whereas "outbound" means you’re moving away from the center of the city.
