Round Trip Transportation from Boston to Gloucester

Seems train service between Boston and Gloucester is discontinued on weekends through September. Any suggestions for transportation between these 2 cities on Sunday 9/10? Bus quouted as almost 3 hours. Uber seems to be an option but not sure. Prefer not to rent a car. All suggestions appreciated. Pearl

Tough one, I think a rental is the best bet. Uber would certainly work, but it will probably be around $50. You could perhaps save some money if you hail it or take a cab from Wonderland Station at the end of the Blue Line Subway.

I understand your preference not to rent a car, but I really think that is the best option.

The rail work is finishing early, on August 27! You should be able to take the train on the weekend beginning in September. Here's a link to an announcement:
