Logan Airport Parking: At The Airport
There are a variety of Logan airport parking options depending on your particular needs.
Logan Airport (Boston's main airport) has a large central parking garage which contains both short-term (under 4 hours) and long-term parking options.
From the central parking garage, you can get to any of the airport's terminals via undercover walkways with moving sidewalks. Just make sure to watch for signs to your terminal so you don't end up taking the scenic route!
FYI, if you happen to be going to terminals B or E, they do have their own, closer parking garages.
If you are going to be parking for a while, you can park at the airport's less expensive option, their economy long-term parking area which has free shuttle connections to the terminals.
Logan Cell Phone Lot
And, if you are picking people up and know they'll be out relatively soon, there's also the Logan Cell Phone Lot. Basically, you can park here and hang out at your car until you get "the call" from your visitors to say they're ready for pick up. You get up to 30 minutes of free parking and the coolest part is that they've even "greened" the lot by giving it porous pavement to help manage water runoff. Only warning: You have to stay at your car or you'll be ticketed and towed.
They're also well set up for accessible parking if you have a valid HP plate or placard.
Need Help or More Information?
The Massport Parking Office has people available 24 hours a day to answer questions about parking, including current parking conditions. They can be reached at 1-617-561-1673.
And, if you're already on the way to the airport, you can even listen to Logan Radio 1650 AM for up-to-the-minute updates on parking conditions.
Now, personally, I would never be that organized, but on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays there can be a reasonable amount of parking overflow, so it can help to know what's going on. Fortunately, there are also message boards along the road that give you instructions on what to do when it's this busy.
FYI, none of the terminals allow curbside parking.
Leaving The Airport
Make sure to bring your parking ticket with you when you head inside as you'll need to pay for it before you get back to your car. Just look for the Exit Express Parking Pay Stations. They're located in the terminals as well as garage lobby areas, and they take cash and credit card.
Logan Airport Parking: Near The Airport
If you want to avoid parking at the airport altogether, an easy (and often less expensive) option is to use a "park and fly" service.
There are two basic options (I've listed companies that provide these services below the descriptions):
- Park at a private parking lot and be shuttled (with your luggage, of course) to your terminal.
Park Shuttle & Fly
Park Ride Fly
- Stay the night at a nearby hotel and be shuttled to your terminal. Your car will be waiting for you when you return from your trip. This can be a particularly good option if you have an early morning flight.
