This station is about 4 miles from the west side of the field, and just over 2 miles' drive from the east side, on the Newburyport/Rockport light rail commuter line into Boston. The fare to Boston's North Station as of July 2009 was $6.25 ($3.10 senior/disabled), and you can take the subway from there to other parts of Boston.
The cost for a cab into Boston (Back Bay) was $55 + tolls (none on our route); however, we had to wait about 40 minutes for the cab after North Atlantic called it, so it would be a good idea to radio them before you land (123.3 MHz) and ask them to order it for you. Make sure you have the street address of your destination, because the cabbies may be relying on their GPS to navigate.
Another alternative is to take a short cab ride to North Beverly Station and catch an MBTA train into Boston.
There is free parking here by the control tower. Alternatively, you can park on the other side of the field at North Atlantic for $5/day (piston single).
North Atlantic makes three trips a day with their truck to fuel planes in this area, so you can still get fuel without taxiing across, as long as you plane is there long enough.
Phone: (800) 541-1745
For a piston single, quoted over the phone 2008-05-16:
Landing fee: none
Handling fee: $10 (waived with fuel purchase)
Note that there is also free parking under the control tower on the east side of the field, if you prefer.
