Summer Travel to Cape Cod MA
Sample Transportation Cost Comparison

For summer travel to Cape Cod, all the options are open to you. Flying, driving, trains, buses, and ferries.

So how does each mode of transportation compare price-wise?

I did some price crunching to give you points of comparison for the different travel possibilities. 

FYI: My comparisons are based on average air fares, bus fares and gas prices at the time I wrote this page. Last summer, travel costs were down a little bit. Hopefully this summer will be even better!
