Get to Provincetown by Air, Land or Sea

Notes from Lands End

May 17th, 2014

Summer and Provincetown just go together. What are the best ways to get here? There are many new options that let you leave the car keys at home, an increasingly attractive alternative for visitors and second home owners.

Summer and Provincetown just go together. What are the best ways to get here?


Cape Air has many flights a day from Logan Airport. Frequent travelers can get a package price. Many people commute with Cape Air, making it possible to get the most out of summer. Rental cars are available through Enterprise.

Seasonal service from Provincetown to Westchester County Airport runs from June to September to accommodate New York City travelers. From the website: “Passengers can opt for our limo service between Westchester and Manhattan, where you’ll be picked up and dropped off at the corner of 35th Street and 8th Avenue in the heart of the city.”

For pilots with your own set of wings, Provincetown Municipal Airport welcomes small aircraft.


Driving your car to the Cape can be sticky but many of us have circumstances that require the use of a vehicle. How do people do it during season? Some get up super early and get over the bridge before 10AM. Others jog their vacation to avoid high impact days like the end of Memorial Day Weekend. However you plan your route, Sigalert.com has up to the minute news with the average speeds at the Borne and Sagamore Bridges. Once you get to Provincetown, if your hotel doesn’t include parking, there are many lots in town. Ask at the front desk of your accommodations.


Join one of the many fundraisers that originate inland and end here. Harbor to the Bay, Bikes for Hartford and the Pam-Mass Challenge, among others, inspire thousands of people to combine travel and philanthropy. Wonderful!


The Plymouth&Brockton Street and Railway Company carries many a passenger to the tip of Cape Cod. Bus travel, while a longer trek than other forms of transportation, is the cheapest. It’s one way to get a lot of work done or read a whole book.

For the best of both worlds, take any bus to South Station in Boston, grab a taxi, the “T” or walk to one of the two fast ferries that will bring you to Provincetown via water.


Boston Water Taxi: With a free bus connection from Logan Airport to its ramp, the Boston Water Taxi can connect you to one of the ferries that depart from Boston Harbor without hitting land. It is a lovely way to avoid the tunnel. For rates and reservations go to: Boston Harbor Water Transit.

Bay State Cruise Company: Departing from Boston’s World Trade Center, this legendary ferry service just celebrated its fortieth year. A new addition to the fleet is the Provincetown IV! Give me just one more night, say some visitors. On Mondays, from June 30 to August 25th and Tuesday, September 2nd, you can take a fast ferry from Provincetown at 6:30am. The iconic Provincetown III still runs on Saturdays.

Boston Harbor Cruises: Leaving from Rose Wharf, BHC is a wonderful ferry service that brings passengers to Provincetown. New for 2014 is the VIP-Town Pass, with unlimited access to any boat without a reservation for the Passholder. You can even bring your bike and get a cocktail. This option is limited to the first takers. Ahoy mate! Visit their site for more info.


Cape Flyer: A renewed train service begins Memorial Day through Labor Day from Boston to Hyannis. This is very good news. Once there, a connecting bus will bring you to Provincetown or maybe a friend will pick you up at the Transportation center. Some Cape Cod trekkers go to the Barnstable Municipal Airport and pick up a rental car to use for their vacation.

See you in Provincetown this summer, however you plan to travel.
