Traveling to Newburyport for the Community Conference #Fire2012

Hey All!

We’ve received a few inquiries into the best ways to get to Newburyport, Mass via plane, train, and automobile. Here’s a bit of info:

Airports and Train Stations

Boston Logan Airport and Manchester, New Hampshire are suitable for visiting Newburyport. Both airports are about 45 minutes from the office.

Also, for those traveling by train From anywhere along the Northeast Corridor, Amtrak can be taken into South Station (Boston). The Acela is 3.5 hours from Penn Station to South Station, and runs hourly until 7pm.

Transportation from Airports

Regal Limo was recommended by one of the inns. They have sedans, vans and other vehicles that can accommodate up to 10-14 passengers and even other larger vehicles for more passengers.

Our Friends at the University of Alabama Press found a reasonable shuttle service to and from the Manchester Airport. They also serve the Boston airport. They are a shared van service called Flightline. They have to be notified and paid a week in advance. After certain hours there is an extra charge, but it looks like they will pick up any time.

Other Local Transportation Services

C&J Trailways Bus Service – from Boston Logan Airport (and South Station adjacent to the Train station) to Newburyport.
Newburyport Taxi Service – Seacoast Taxi (978) 499-9990

Port Taxi978-465-2333

For those that are driving to our event there is parking available at the inns. There is also a public parking lot between the Firebrand Technologies office and the Firehouse Center and another lot located to the right and behind the Firehouse. The access road for this is just beyond the Firehouse when you are leaving the office. These parking lots are within walking distance of the inns in Newburyport. Another public lot is available across the street from the Firehouse but that is limited to 2 hour parking so parking there is not suggested.

Feel free to give us a shout with any further questions: 978.465.7755
