As hope grows for a third bridge to ease traffic congestion coming and going from Cape Cod, Linear Air has begun an executive shuttle service between Boston and Chatham.
According to the Cape Cod Chronicle, the company makes 50-minute runs from Hanscom Field in Bedford, Mass. to the Chatham air strip Fridays at 4:45 pm with return flights Sundays at 2:00 pm from Chatham. The speedy service cuts the commute from two hours with no traffic, and four hours or more during peak traffic times. Convenience comes with a steep price however, tickets cost $1,115 for a round-trip fare.
Neighbors needn't worry about the Chatham airport becoming as busy as Provincetown, or the Hamptons in New York. The runways in Chatham handle planes that accommodate up to eight passengers only and officials doubt there will be a huge demand for the pricey transportation option.
