Martha's Vineyard is an island so there is no completely land based way to get there. There are two Martha's Vineyard arrival points: Vineyard Haven, which has both plane and ferry arrivals, and Oak Bluffs, which is ferry only. Generally VP staffies will pick students up at either place.

If your travels will be involving a plane:

  • You can fly from your city of origin to Boston (BOS) or Providence (PVD,) which both have air service with Cape Air to the Vineyard Haven airport on Martha's Vineyard (MVY.)

  • You can fly to Providence (PVD) and take a Shuttle to the Vineyard Fast Ferry in Quonset, RI (just south of Providence) to Oak Bluffs.

  • You can fly to Providence (PVD) and take a Town Car to SeaStreak Martha's Vineyard in New Bedford to Oak Bluffs or Vineyard Haven.

  • You can fly to Boston (BOS) and take the bus (Peter Pan/Bonanza) to Woods Hole. There is a bus stop at Logan (the Boston Airport) and the Woods Hole bus stop is across the street from the Steamship Authority ferry terminal, which provides ferry service to Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven.

If you have transport to the ferry of your choice you have the following options:

All three ferries offer parking lots on the mainland side to leave your car. Only the Steamship Authority (Woods Hole) offers auto transport to the island. If you plan to bring your car across make your reservation early as there is limited room.
