MBTA to launch weekend service on Hingham-Boston ferry

The MBTA announced it will launch weekend commuter boat service for the first time between Hingham and Boston later this month, officials said.

The service, which will run between May 24 and Columbus Day weekend, will make 14 round trips each Saturday and Sunday between Hingham and Boston’s Long Wharf. The boats will also make stops at Hull, George’s Island, and Logan Airport, according to MBTA general manager Beverly Scott.

“We are pleased that we can offer a convenient and affordable way to get into Boston or enjoy the harbor islands,” Scott said today in a statement.

The boats are scheduled to depart hourly from Hingham and Boston between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. respectively, and will include two additional round trips scheduled Saturday. Fares from Logan Airport will be $16, but only $8 for those with a monthly MBTA Commuter Boat pass. All other one-way fares will be $8, officials said.
