Do I need one or two Charlies Ticket/cash fare SL2->SL1?

We are getting off a cruise at Black Falcon, and going to Logan airport.

We can take SL2 from cruise terminal to South Station, then SL1 from South Station to airport.

There is no office selling Charlie Card at Black Falcon.

Do I need one or two Charlies Ticket/cash fare for my trip? e.g., Do I need to pay another fare when I transfer from SL2 to SL1 at South Station?

There are 4 of us with little luggage. But if the trip takes two tickets each,we might as well take a taxi.

Once you're "inside", you don't pay another fare. So only one fare is charged. However, for four people, even with only a single fare, why not take a taxi? It's not going to be that much more money-wise and it will be so much easier and faster.

You don't need to pay a second fare and you don't need to go to South Station. You can get off SL2 and cross over to SL1 outbound at any underground stop. World Trade Center is the closest for you. Don't change at Silver Line Way. You will have to pay extra there.

I would recommend taking a Taxi, as it will be almost as cheap with four of you. However if you want to take the Silver Line, wbp has the answer. Take it to World Trade Center and cross over.
