car rental from Provincetown

I am flying into Logan, taking the last ferry over to Provincetown arriving at 7 pm in early July. I want to get to my hotel in Eastham where I am staying for 3 nights. I was planning on travelling by bus but hotel folks said better to rent a car. Can one rent a car near the ferry pier? Any other ideas for transportation just for me staying in the one area and then returning back to Provincetown and the ferry. Suggestions desired from a midwesterner trying to find her way, thanks

Here are some suggestions besides car rental. Hire a taxi cab, catch a bus, or hop the train.

I GOOGLED "transportation from provincetown to eastham" & the various websites I found are listed below

TAXI - http://www.capecabtaxi.com/

BUS - http://www.capecodtransit.org/fixed-route.htm

I hope this helps as an alternate.

>> Hire a taxi cab, catch a bus, or hop the train.<<

For the past two summers the Cape Flyer train has run from Boston to Hyannis on weekends. There is no train beyond Hyannis. They pulled out the tracks long ago and sold off what was left of the land the tracks were on about 15-20 years ago.

Taxi or bus to Eastham is fine but the real problem is getting around once you are there. You may not always want to move around at the same schedule as the bus. And if you are not staying on rye 6, the walk from your hotel to the bus stop at night may be very dark.

A few years ago we were staying inN.Truro and my kids' friend was staying eaStham. They got together one day and I drove to the Eastham rental at night. My city-kid was a bit freaked by how dark it was!

If you rent with Enterprise they will come pick you up. They are definitely in Orleans and possibly in Ptown as well.

It is best to get around in a car however, if you want to avoid it, you can consider using The Flex, a shuttle that will enable you to get around on the Outer Cape at least.

Why not take the bus from Logan to Eastham? Is there some reason that you are taking the ferry?

Make arrangements with the Provincetown Enterprise company to pick you up at the ferry. Call the main number for Enterprise and speak to them because the P-town office shuts down for the winter.

You will need a car in Eastham if you plan to travel around a bit. It is a straight shot down Rt. 6 from P-town to Eastham...30 minutes. Easy peasy!


Alternatively, call the Orleans office as suggested by CCC
