Lowell: Transportation

Approaching the City

Boston's Logan International Airport, a 40-minute drive to the southeast, offers complete domestic, international, and freight air service. Manchester Airport in New Hampshire is slightly closer and offers domestic service. Vermont Transit Lines bus service and Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority rail lines both arrive at Gallagher Terminal.

Interstate-495 cuts through the city, running east and west and intersecting with Massachusetts Route 3, which runs north-south. The Lowell Connector allows highway access from these major arteries into downtown Lowell.

Traveling in the City

Lowell Regional Transit Authority (LRTA) provides local and suburban bus service out of Gallagher Terminal. LRTA also offers Road Runner services for elderly and disabled patrons.
