Aiming to reduce airport traffic during one of its busiest period of the year, Massport is offering a special February vacation week parking rate of $22 for its Logan Express bus service from Braintree, Framingham, Peabody, and Woburn. The discount, which amounts to a 66 percent savings over the standard fare, will be available between 12:01 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 17 through 11:59 p.m. Monday, Feb. 28. Cars that remain longer will be assessed the standard fare for any additional days.

Using Logan Express can yield significant cost savings. For instance, a family of four, with two children under 12, or a pair of adults would pay $66 for a week's worth of parking and transportation to and from the airport. The cheapest parking option at the airport runs $108 a week.

If you haven't used Logan Express, this is the way it works. Drive to the nearest of the four centers. You will have to pay for parking, along with a bus ticket. The bus service will cost $12 one way or $22 round-trip for passengers 12 and over. Children under 12 with an adult ride for free. The buses run pretty often and will drop you right at your terminal. Estimated travel time is 30-45 minutes.
