MBTA

Pros: It’s as simple as a quick train and shuttle-bus ride.

Cons: Just kidding, this is the T. Sorry, but you’ve missed your flight.

UberPool

Pros: Available 24/7.

Cons: Stranger danger! UberPool is a Russian roulette of humanity.

Take to the Sea

Pros: With high-speed ferry service from Hingham and Hull, it’s usually smooth sailing to Logan.

Cons: Ever cruised the harbor on a frigid January morning?

Logan Express

Pros: Low-cost shuttle rides from the Back Bay, Braintree, Framingham, Woburn, and Peabody, with $7 daily parking in the ’burbs.

Cons: For the habitually tardy, there’s little wiggle room—and this is one bus you don’t want to miss.

Stretch Limo

Pros: Pop a bottle of bubbly on the way to the airport to celebrate the start of your vacation.

Cons: No matter how flashy, no car is immune to the traffic of the Ted Williams Tunnel.

Your Own Car

Pros: You’re in total control of your destiny.

Cons: You’re in total control of your destiny (and standard parking fees are $35 a day).
