BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Heading into one of the busiest travel times of the year, this week could be a doozy for those going out of town for Thanksgiving.

Last year, nearly a million people went in and out of Boston Logan International Airport around the holiday.

This year, Massport is encouraging travelers to use public transportation or rideshare apps to get to the airport. Currently, the first six levels of the parking garage are already full.

Travelers are also urged to head to the airport early.

Things are also picking up on the roads. Across the country, AAA expects this year will see the busiest Thanksgiving travel since 2005, with more than 55 million people in cars and on planes.

Massport says roads will be the worst on Wednesday evening around rush hour — with delays expected to be more than three times as bad as usual.
