Air Travel

The two airports nearest to Woods Hole are Boston Logan Airport (BOS) and Providence T.F. Green Airport (PVD). Both airports are just about 80 miles (~128km) from Woods Hole, and both offer bus service (Peter Pan Bus Lines) to Falmouth and Woods Hole. Please check bus schedules ahead of time to make sure your flight does not arrive too late to catch the last bus.

Ground Transportation

Driving Directions to WHOI

Peter Pan/Bonanza Bus Service to Falmouth/Woods Hole is available from both airports.  On Peter Pan’s web site put in Boston Logan Airport or T.F. Green Airport and then Falmouth or Woods Hole to get the correct schedules. Please note that bus trip from T.F Green will take more time because of bus transfers and is not as convenient as buses from Boston’s Logan Airport.  At Boston’s Logan Airport, Peter Pan buses leave directly for Falmouth and Woods Hole, taking about 2 hours.  The bus stops outside each terminal (exit ground floor of the baggage claim area) by an overhead sign that says “Scheduled Buses”.  As there are only 9 trips a day, it’s best to try and coordinate your flight arrival time close to the bus departure time.
