Travel & Area Transportation
The nearest airports to Cape Cod are Boston’s Logan Airport and Providence’s T.F Green Airport. Both airports are about equal distance from WHOI, but bus service from T.F. Green to Cape Cod is very poor, so if flying into Providence, R.I. best to rent a car to travel to WHOI.
Directions to WHOI and Campus Maps
The bus service (Peter Pan/Bonanza) from Boston's Logan Airport is very convenient. The bus leaves directly from Logan airport for Cape Cod, Falmouth and Woods Hole (please note that the village of Woods Hole is within the town of Falmouth), and is very reliable, but there's only 6 trips per day, so if you'd like to take the bus, it's best to try and coordinate your flight arrival and departure times close to the bus scheduled times. The current bus schedule is copied below for your convenience.
To catch the
Peter Pan/Bonanza bus to Falmouth from Boston's Logan Airport, you will need to exit the baggage
area on the ground floor. The bus stops
outside of each terminal under a sign titled "Scheduled Buses" and
you can buy a ticket on board.
The bus ride down from Boston
to Falmouth and Woods Hole will take
about 1.5 hrs. As mentioned the Falmouth bus stop is directly behind the Inn on the
Square, just a
few minutes walk down Depot Avenue
and around the corner to your left. The Inn
is on the corner of Depot Ave.
and North Main Street.
