The MBTA Thanksgiving Holiday service schedule for Wednesday, November 25 through Friday, November 27 is available here, at www.mbta.com.
Due heavy traffic, residents are encouraged to use public transportation to get to and from Logan Airport. Last year on the day before Thanksgiving, more than 50,000 drivers traveled through the Ted Williams, Callahan and Sumner Tunnels.
To accommodate MBTA customers traveling to and from Logan Airport, Silver Line service will be enhanced during peak airport travel times before the holiday and continuing through Tuesday, December 1. The Silver Line stops at five Logan terminals. With low floors and plenty of space, the 60-foot-long Silver Line vehicles are ideal for customers traveling with luggage. Remember to buy a CharlieTicket when leaving Logan. Buy a CharlieTicket with a One- or Seven-Day LinkPass to use during the holiday weekend. To learn more visit the MBTA website or call MBTA Customer Support, 617-222-3200 or 800-392-6100, TTY 617-222-5146, Monday through Friday 6:30 AM to 8:00 PM and Saturday and Sunday from 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM.
Massport recommends passengers allow extra time to check in and get through security and to always check their airline flight status before leaving for the airport. Visit Massport here at www.massport.com for updated flight arrival and departure information.
