MBTA to Offer Weekend Commuter Boat Service Starting May 24
For the first time, weekend commuter boat service will be provided between Hingham, Hull, Georges Island and Boston beginning Saturday, May 24, MBTA General Manager Beverly Scott announced Monday. The weekend service will be available through Columbus Day weekend.    

Each Saturday and Sunday, there will be 14 roundtrips between Hingham and Boston’s Long Wharf, with a number of boats making stops at Hull, Georges Island, and Logan Airport. The boats depart hourly from Hingham and Boston, beginning at 8 a.m. and 9 a.m., respectively.  

On Saturdays, there will be two additional round trips at night with the last boat departing Boston at 11:15 p.m., and arriving in Hingham at midnight. 

A one-way fare between Hingham or Hull and Long Wharf is $8. The fare for Logan service is $16, but only $8 for those with a valid monthly Commuter Boat pass.  

“We are pleased that we can offer people a convenient and affordable way to get into Boston or enjoy the harbor islands,” said General Manager Scott in a statement issued Monday.  “Avoid the hassle of driving and parking, and enjoy a relaxing boat ride into the city.”
