Boston travel: Trains, buses halted, planes flying
April 19, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Transportation to and from the Boston area is virtually shut down Friday morning, with the exception of airplanes, which continue to take off and land at Logan International Airport.

Amtrak has stopped trains about an hour south of the city in Providence, R.I. Amtrak has also suspended its entire Downeaster service which runs from Bunswick, Maine to Boston, according to spokesman Cliff Cole.

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, which operates commuter trains into Boston as well as the city's subway — called the T — and the city's buses suspended all operations.

Megabus has canceled at least 18 buses between Boston and New York, New Haven, Conn., Hartford, Conn., Burlington, Vt. and Philadelphia. More than 1,000 passengers were affected, according to spokesman Mike Alvich. They received emails offering a refund or the option to rebook for free.

Bolt Bus, Greyhound and Peter Pan Bus Lines have all also suspended service. Passengers booked on canceled Bolt trips have already received refunds to their credit cards, according to Timothy Stokes, spokesman for Greyhound and Bolt Bus.

Logan airport remains open, although getting there will be a challenge for many passengers. On a typical day, the airport has about 1,000 flights, according to flight tracking site FlightAware.

JetBlue, the largest airline in Boston with about 100 daily flights, is allowing anybody scheduled to fly to or from Boston to change their ticket for free.
