Would anyone attending the Sept. 13-18 program like to share a taxi from Boston Airport? My flight arrives at 1:30pm.

My husband and I will be attending the Sept. 13-18, 2015 trip. We are interested in talking to others flying into Boston for this tour. Perhaps we can arrange to travel together to Rockport.

I am attending this program and would like to share a taxi to Rockport. My flight arrives at Logan at 1:30pm.
Carol Schelling Aug 13, 2015 at 01:37 PM

Hi Peggy, thank you for your response to my request. Unfortunately we just learned of a major flight change and we won't be arriving until after 8:00 pm!! I wish we could connect, but we can't. We look forward to meeting you in person in Rockport.
Peggy Bott Aug 13, 2015 at 07:33 PM

Thanks for your quick response. I will see you in Rockport.

friend and I are going on this program 8/9--8/14/2015. Anyone else out there?
Edith Warren Jun 15, 2015 at 04:16 PM

We need transportation from Boston to Rockport on the 9th of Aug. Can we share a taxi?

My wife & I are attending 9/21-26/14. We're getting into Logan @5pm. on 9/21. Anyone wanting to share the Limo ride? I'll make arrangements but would like to share the $75 expense if it fits anyone elses plans.
Carol Schelling Aug 11, 2015 at 11:58 AM

Hi, I noticed you took the New England Maritime trip last year. We are doing it in September. I am curious what transportation you used from airport to Rockport. I was hoping to someone on our trip, but have gotten no responses. Looks like we will be on our own. So I'd like to learn about your experience. Thanks for your attention to my request.

I would like info on commuting from Logan
Airport to Rockport - it seems the public transportation is a bit complicated. I will be attending 7-13 to 7-18.

Janna Amelkin Jun 26, 2014 at 07:08 PM

I am thinking of attending this program starting September 7, but am concerned about getting there. Is there anyone who could give me a ride from New York City or Boston? Of course I would be happy to pay expenses.
