The Plymouth & Brockton Street Railway provides bus service to Provincetown from downtown Boston or Logan Airport, with stops en route.
The Shuttle, run by the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority, provides a much-needed transportation boost. The route begins at Horton's Camping Resort in Truro and continues to Provincetown along Route 6A; it stops wherever a passenger or roadside flagger dictates. Once in Provincetown, the shuttle continues up Bradford Street, with alternating trips to Herring Cove Beach and Pilgrim Park as well as summertime service up to Provincetown Airport and Race Point Beach. It runs every 30 minutes and is outfitted to carry bicycles. The service is popular and reasonably priced ($2 for a single fare, $6 for a day pass), and the only trouble seems to be finding parking on the Truro end (plans are in the works to find alternative parking areas). The shuttle runs throughout the day from late May until mid-October, with more-limited service during the off-season.
Run by the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority, the Flex bus has year-round service running from Harwich Port to Provincetown that stops in Wellfleet and Truro.
