Editors, Vineyard Gazette:

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of experiencing the new complimentary bus service to Boston. It is a perk that comes with the purchase of a round-trip ticket on the Seastreak fast ferry to New Bedford. The bus meets the Seastreak ferry in New Bedford and proceeds nonstop to South Station in Boston. I left Oak Bluffs at 2 p.m. and was at South Station at 4:15 p.m. The trip was relaxing and very inexpensive. So if you need to go to Boston for any reason, I would strongly suggest that you give Seastreak to Boston a try. You can make a reservation online, by phone, or by visiting the Seatreak booth in Oak Bluffs or Vineyard Haven. I went to the Seastreak booth in the Oak Bluffs SSA terminal the day before I wanted to go, and the agent was very helpful with the information I needed.
