Logan Woburn Express
Express busses depart Logan Airport every 30 minutes (on the hour and half hour), Monday – Friday from 6:30am – Midnight and one late bus at 1:15am. Fare for one way is $12.00 – just get on the bus at Logan and pay when you get to Woburn. Easier to have cash – exact amount, but they will take Amex when you get to destination. Might just take a bit longer. To find stop for Logan Express while at Airport – follow signs for Massport Logan Express stop (usually at the end of the pick‐up area). Each terminal has a designated bus stop. Logan Express Shuttle for Woburn is the Green one.

Anderson Regional Transportation Center
Amtrak runs between Boston and Portland, ME and stops at this facility.

Train Travel from South of Boston
If you are traveling from south of Boston, the Amtrak takes you to Boston South Station. To continue to the Anderson Regional Transportation Center, you need to take a train from Boston North Station. So, instead of departing at South Station, a better option would be to depart the Amtrak at Boston Back Bay Station. This station is also part of the MBTA Orange Line Subway train, which goes directly to Boston North Station. Take the Orange Line Subway train heading towards Oak Grove and depart the train at North Station.
