Taxi vs train

Hello Everyone,

I will be visiting Boston in about two weeks from now. My flight from Boston (BOS) to Los Angeles (LAX) is scheduled to departure from Boston at 6:15 am. Does anyone have an idea how much the fare is from Chinatown to the airport by train or taxi, and which one is more convenient? I assuming I have to be at the airport around 4:00 am.

Please advise.

Thank you,

MM

You will have no choice but to take a taxi, as the T doesn't start running until 5am. A taxi should cost you somewhere around $30 with tips and tolls.

Thank you BeantownMay!

Any other option besides Taxi? From what time to what time the T operates?

Thanks again!

Not really. Take a taxi. As I said, the T doesn't start until 5am. It ends at night at 12:30am.

And if you get to the airport a 12:30am .... I don't think you will be permitted to stay there all night. The airport closes.
