We are all concerned about reducing our impact on the environment, and your trip to the Boston Harbor Islands is no exception. Park ferries have the best emissions rating available from EPA for marine vessels.
Do your part: emissions from personal vehicles make up the majority of global warming pollution generated in national parks. Whenever possible, walk, carpool, or take public transportation for travel in the greater Boston area. Leave the car at home.
Make green transportation choices that contribute to the well-being of the planet by using buses, subways, commuter boats, and trains to reach piers and other mainland locations. Public transportation reduces emissions and congestion.
AMTRAK and the MBTA provide passenger rail service to North or South Station in Boston. South Station is also served by several interstate bus lines. Take buses, subways, or taxis to pier destinations.
Reduce the number of plane trips you take—but if you are flying in or out of Logan Airport over the water, you often have a good view of the islands. Give us a wave next time you are flying by.
