Boston Driving Information

Driving is on the right side of the road.

All Boston Logan Airport rental cars are automatic transmission.

Your local drivers' licence is required.

An International Drivers' Permit (or IDP) may be required, especially if your local drivers' licence is in a language other than the local language (you may inquire when you pick up your car).

Boston Driving Stress Level: 6/10

Driving around the heart of downtown Boston can be difficult and extremely chaotic, with one-way streets and roads regularly being closed due to the city's famous 'Big Dig', which is being managed by the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority.


Those looking to park in the city center should consider staying at a hotel with its own parking space, underground garage or nearby parking lot. Popular garages in downtown Boston quickly fill up and can be found along Beacon Street, Tremont Street, Province Street and Devonshire Place.
