Seems that Winthrop now has a boat that will take you from East Boston to Downtown. Got this in the email.
I have to share my exciting commute. For years I’ve been trying to find a land route from East Boston to downtown that doesn’t go over the cavernous craters of Chelsea or travel with the hell-fired cars that speed down Route 99. Up to now, I’ve relegated myself to locking up my bike at Orient Heights and taking the T downtown. This is all because the T doesn’t allow bicycles on board during standard commuting hours.
As of last week, I now have a land sea route! Winthrop now has a ferry! And I just have to say it’s been awesome. They welcome bikes and I can grab a beer on the ride home if I want. I met the project manager for Boston Harbor Cruises. He may consider getting some bike hooks or stands for the bikes to use while en-route. Check out the schedule: here
While this seams like a pricey option if you were going to do it daily, for the occasional jaunt out that way its not bad.
Thanks Marcie for the heads up.
