Ground transportation is easy to find here; taxi stands are outside every terminal and rental car agency offices abound. The city’s public transportation service, commonly known as the T, also stops directly at each terminal. The Silver Line bus, which comes with luggage racks, will transport you to South Station, where there are connections for other buses, trains and the city subway.
