Default Concord to Logan by Bus?

Considering taking the bus from Concord to Logan, to avoid driving myself, traffic and parking.....

Has anyone taken the Concord Coach Lines bus from Concord to Logan ?
How is the service, and are they on schedule.

Thanks !

I've taken Concord Coach from Meredith many times to Logan.

Always, was excellent.

I used to use it all the time prior to Covid. They definitely run exactly on time, and the service was comfortable and excellent.

It's nice to sit back, use the internet, relax, and let someone else do that awful drive to Boston and Logan Airport.

Worth the drive. Comfortable, clean, and on time. Parking in Concord is free!

Parking in Concord is free for 3weeks, unless that has changed.

Concord Coach is very good and they travel about as fast as traffic will allow. The travel time is not much different than a car. The buses have wifi so I usually take my laptop out and the time passes quickly.

The only downside, if you consider it that, is they stop at South Station for about 15 minutes going to and from Logan. The C&J Dover, Newburyport bus goes directly to and from Logan with no stops.

C & J Dover bus, at least back in January, only went to South Station. Portsmouth bus goes to Logan and has one stop in Seabrook. Newburyport station has been replaced by Seabrook. Dover and Portsmouth parking is currently free, Seabrook parking is not free. Expect to have to park in the overflow lot at Portsmouth. If you get to park close to the terminal, also buy a lottery ticket, because that day is truly your lucky day.

C & J has more trips to Logan daily than Concord Coach.

My bad Dave. The last time I took the C&J bus they had moved the terminal from Newburyport to Seabrook. I forgot that.

It was a nice ride but I would leave yourself a little extra time, just in case. Last year, on the way home, the driver kept getting a tire overheat warning light. We had to stop to let the tires cool down. If that had happened on the way down it would have cost us an extra 30 minutes or so. Going down, we had left time for lunch at the airport so it would have been fine, a quick lunch instead of a relaxed time at Legal Seafood but the point is, and true in general, don't time things too tightly.

This is NOT to ding the bus company. Cars can have mechanical problems too.

And, we made two stops on the way down. South Station and one other. We lost time going in at South Station when a passenger family had problems paying for their fair. It took 15 minutes for them to work things out. The driver was NOT happy.

I use Concord Coach every year traveling from Logan to Center Harbor roundtrip. The bus is always clean and drivers friendly. Easy to find the bus at Logan and a nice ride through all that traffic.
