The logical thing might be to wait a few weeks and check the registration list.

For FUDCon 2009 Toronto, we contracted a bus to shuttle people from
the Westford, MA Red Hat office to the event, and back.  The cost
ended up more reasonable than flying so many people to Toronto.  It
also wasn't a terribly longer process once you factor in airports and
other mass transit.

This year Flock is an even shorter distance away (6 hours vs. 8-9).
So a bus might again be reasonable, if the number of people attending
warrants it.  There are also different size buses.  I think we had a
large 50+ seater, but I believe there are smaller and cheaper ones

Is there any idea yet how many people from Westford are attending
Flock 2015?

So as of this moment, there are 17 pre-registered attendees who have indicated that they are in/near Westford. We should figure out if a bus is sensible at that number (assuming as many as 24 riders might be wise, as some folks may not yet have decided whether they are coming). Doing a quick search of local charter bus companies[1], we could probably rent a minibus (30 seats) for about $1250 each way ($3.25/mi for 385 miles, based on Google maps[2]). Alternately, they have a larger (56-seat) bus for $3.75/mi and a couple of "luxury" buses whose price is not listed on their website.

Obviously, other bus companies likely exist, but this is hopefully useful information for starting an investigation.
