MacMillan Wharf (or Town Wharf) in the center of Provincetown is where intercity buses begin and end their runs, and where the Provincetown Chamber of Commerce operates its information office.

By Plane

Cape Air (tel. toll free 800-352-0714) flies between Boston's Logan International Airport and Provincetown several times daily in summer, a scenic trip of less than half an hour.

By Bus

In summer, Bonanza Bus Lines will take you from New York City (Port Authority Terminal, Greyhound counter; tel 212-564-8484) to Hyannis and Provincetown.

In Hyannis, transfer to a Plymouth & Brockton bus (tel 508-775-5524). The trip takes 8 hours from New York City. There are also buses from Providence RI (Bonanza Terminal; tel 401-751-8800 or 331-7500), a trip of 3.5 hours.

Bonanza also runs buses from Albany NY and Springfield MA to Hyannis, where you connect for P-town.

In Hartford CT the terminal is at Union Station (tel 203-547-1500).

Plymouth & Brockton Street Railway Company runs four buses daily in summer from Boston to Provincetown.

Connections are arranged for buses coming from Montréal via Boston to Cape Cod (two buses daily in summer, with additional services on weekends).

By Car

US 6, the Mid-Cape Highway, is divided highway (mostly four lanes, but in some parts two) all the way to P-town, where it ends and brings you face to face with a parking problem.

Don't try to park in the center of town, unless you arrive early in the morning. Instead, get a space in one of the municipal lots (follow the signs) if you can.

By Boat from Boston

You can take a delightful 3-hour cruise from Boston to Provincetown aboard the m/v Provincetown II, or a quicker 90-minute voyage aboard the fast catamaran ferry m/v Provincetown III, both operated by Bay State Cruises (tel 617-748-1428).

The ships' dock is at Boston's World Trade Center, a 12-minute walk from the South Station Transportation Center, or you can ride the MBTA Silver Line buses from South Station to the World Trade Center in about five minutes.

Breakfast, lunch, snacks, alcoholic beverages, and other refreshments are for sale, and both ships have open (sunny), covered (shady), and enclosed (air-conditioned) seating areas. More...
