The Massachusetts Port Authority announced Thursday that it will start offering daily shuttle service from Logan Airport to the Back Bay, making stops at Copley MBTA Station and the Hynes Convention Center.

The shuttle service will launch this spring as a two-year pilot program, with service every 20 minutes between the Back Bay locations and the airport, Massport said.

Massport said it expects to carry up to 1,400 passengers each day using 40-foot clean fuel buses. Service will be seven days a week starting at 5 a.m. and running until 9 p.m. from the Back Bay and from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m. from Logan Airport, Massport said.

The fare will be $5, payable with a credit or debit card, or free for riders with a valid MBTA pass, Massport said.

“Logan Express service between the suburbs and Logan Airport is successful and the time is right with the closure of the Government Center T station for us to test that concept in the Back Bay where demand is high for direct airport service to accommodate the growing number of visitors and conventioneers,” Massport CEO Thomas P. Glynn said in prepared release.
