While there are several different travel options to Worcester, the fastest and most convenient transportation from Boston Logan Airport to Worcester MA is by taxi or private transfer. This direct route will deliver you to your destination in 55 minutes in light traffic, almost half the time of the bus or train options, and will cost an average of $154 (€146.50) for up to 4 passengers. If you’re travelling alone, then there are two comfortable and convenient bus routes; one that goes via South Station and connects with a Greyhound bus, takes around 82 minutes – excluding wait times, and costs $14 (€13.30) per traveller; and another that uses the Logan Express service to Framingham where passengers connect with the Commuter Rail train to Worcester, taking around 72 minutes – excluding wait times, and costs between $13.25 and $16.25 (€12.60-15.50) per traveller. The cheapest option if you’re not in a hurry is to take the free SL1 airport shuttle to South Station, and change to the Commuter Rail to Worcester which will cost $12.25 (€11.70) per traveller and takes a little over 2 hours, not including any wait times.

Where do I take the bus and train from?

The SL1 departs from each of the airport terminals, once you walk out of Arrivals and follow the exit signs you’ll see the stop. At South Station, follow the signs to the Commuter Rail and board the Framingham/Worcester Line.

Convenience

Using the airport shuttle bus part-way from Boston to Worcester will certainly save you money but overall, this option isn’t the most convenient due to the potentially long wait times at South Station. If you’re travelling alone and on a budget, this option will still get you to Worcester in 2 to 3 hours.

Editor’s Note

Travelling by bus to South Station and then by train to Worcester is the cheapest transportation option to reach your destination and the best option if you're travelling on a budget. Given that the train only operates on average once an hour, be prepared for longer wait times at South Station if you don't make your connection.
