Blue Apple Bus Company announced today that, effective Saturday, November 5th, the company will start daily bus service from the Mansfield MBTA Station to Logan Airport in Boston.
John Cogliano, President, and CEO of Blue Apple Bus Company, said that the new bus service between the Mansfield MBTA Station to Logan Airport will provide a reliable transportation option that is cost effective for the public. The Blue Apple bus service from Mansfield to Logan Airport is a real solution to the high price of gas and the stressful drive people have traveling to the airport.
Cogliano said, “The Blue Apple bus service will start with ten daily round trips of bus service from Mansfield to Logan Airport from 3 am to 9 pm and from Logan Airport to Mansfield from 4:45 am to 10:45 pm. In addition, this new daily bus service will increase over the next several months to hourly bus service from Mansfield to Logan Airport. The Blue Apple Bus service from Mansfield to Logan Airport is a game-changer for people living along the Route 95 Corridor.”
Cogliano, who held the top state transportation positions including Massachusetts Secretary of Transportation and Chairman of the MBTA, Commissioner of the Massachusetts Highway Department, and the Chairman and CEO of the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority, said, “This new daily bus service from Mansfield to Logan Airport is a public-private partnership that only could have happened with the support of the Town of Mansfield, GATRA, MassDOT, MBTA, Federal Highway Administration, Federal Transit Administration, US Congressman Stephen Lynch, US Congressman Jake Auchincloss, State Representative Jay Barrows, and State Senator Paul Feeney; all working together.”
“This new bus service to Logan Airport from Mansfield will benefit not only the residents and businesses of Mansfield, Foxboro, and Norton but people across the surrounding communities. This airport bus service is long overdue and provides financial relief to the public from the high gas prices,” said State Representative Jay Barrows (R-Mansfield).
“The launch of the Blue Apple bus service is a big win for our region. Bus shuttle service from the Mansfield MBTA Station to Logan Airport provides a critical missing link that will support economic development, more efficient transportation to and from Boston, and an added level of comfort to residents in our area. I’m particularly proud of how the local, state, and federal partnerships with the Blue Apple Bus Company came together and enabled us to get this new bus service running that will directly benefit people in Bristol and Norfolk counties and nearby towns and cities,” said State Senator Paul Feeney (D-Foxborough).
“Before the launch of the Blue Apple bus service there had been no easy way to get to Logan Airport from Mansfield or the surrounding towns. This new fixed line service will greatly benefit residents by providing a convenient way to get to the airport that does not require line changes or the use of expensive ride share apps,” said State Representative Ted Philips (D-Sharon).
“This new Blue Apple Bus service launch is a great example of how local, state, and federal authorities can come together and build partnerships with companies to enhance life in our community. The new service from the Mansfield MBTA station to Logan Airport will provide our residents with more access to Boston and the airport, promoting new economic development and making our community an even better place to live,” said State Representative Adam Scanlon (D-North Attleborough).
“The Town of Mansfield recognizes that an enhanced transportation system provides economic and quality of life benefits to the residents and businesses in Mansfield,” said Kevin Dumas, Town Manager of Mansfield.
“GATRA has been overseeing the operation of public transit services across its now twenty-nine diverse communities, including the Town of Mansfield, since 1976. This new bus service from Mansfield to Logan Airport improves transportation connectivity for the region and will help reduce traffic congestion,” said Mary Ellen DeFrias, Administrator, Greater Attleboro Taunton Regional Transit Authority.
“As a Chamber we receive a variety of inquiries on a daily basis, one of them being service to Logan. The launch of this much needed service will be a great benefit for the leisure or business travelers, as well as helping our environment,” said Kara Griffin Executive Director of the Tri-Town Chamber of Commerce.
“Traveling on a Blue Apple bus to Logan Airport is a safer, greener, and more cost-effective way to travel to your destination. Every Blue Apple bus can take up to 55 cars off the road which reduces local traffic congestion, reduces overall gas consumption, and truly benefits the environment,” Cogliano said.
Parking for passengers using the Blue Apple Bus airport express bus service is available at the Foundry Parking Facility located at Howe Street, in Mansfield adjacent to the MBTA Mansfield Station Parking Facility.
