USE THIS THREAD to help find roommates, ride sharing, etc

For Transportation from the airport, this is the recommendation from WHOI,
"We recommend the Peter Pan bus out of Logan Airport. https://peterpanbus.com/ The bus comes right into Woods Hole and shuttles from Logan throughout the day. As you can see from the attached map, it is just a short walk to the MBL from the bus stop. This is a popular choice for our visitors."

Online ticket purchase at www.peterpanbus.com

Looking at the timetable for round trip Fri/Sun Logan->Woods Hole->Logan, the cost will be $64.00 ($34.00 each way, no round trip discount - price updated 1/25).

Friday Times: 8:00AM until 7:20 PM roughly every 2 hours Expect the trip to take 2.5 hours (3.5 during peak traffic).

Sunday Times 6:55 AM until 4:50 PM If you have a late return flight, an alternate return will need to be planned.

Yay, thanks for starting this thread! I couldn't get a good flight home on Sunday, so I'm flying out early on Monday morning instead. My plan is to take the Peter Pan bus back to the airport on Sunday evening and spend the night in an airport hotel. Just figured I'd mention it here, in case anyone else ends up with similar travel plans, we could plan to be in the same hotel. It looks like there's a Hilton, a Hyatt Regency, and an Embassy Suites at the airport. I haven't booked a room yet, so I'm also open to other creative ideas. A night underwater in an octopus' garden? :wink:

Note, MBL can also probably accommodate you for an additional night, if that's of interest. PM me and I can get you in contact with the right folks.

I would also like this info for possibilities on both the front and back end as I am still hunting flights

If you sign up for an account with Peter Pan bus line (you don't have to purchase a ticket at the same time), they will give you a $5.00 opening credit balance. I did not see this advertised anywhere but created my account and the amount was credited.

Do we know what the full game plan is for Sunday? I'm trying to determine if I can make it back for a Sunday flight or if I need to plan on either staying at MBL an additional night or in Boston.

We're going to see a tour later Sunday afternoon - maybe two. May include a tour of the deep sea ROV, something I've wanted to see in person for a long time. I expect we'll be wrapped up by around 6 at the latest... and probably not before 4pm. That's how it's looking currently... :rainbow:
