BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Massport is rolling out a new policy regarding rideshares at Boston Logan International Airport.
The new policy — starting on Monday Oct. 28 — will require all passengers who land in Terminals A and C to go to Central Parking in order to be picked up by Lyft and Uber drivers.
This rule will also apply to Terminals B and E the following week on Nov. 4.
Changes will affect departing passengers beginning on Nov. 11, as the drop-off location will move to the lower level terminal curbs between 4 a.m. and 10 a.m.
The drop-off location for departing passengers will move to Central Parking beginning December 9, except for those passengers departing between 4 a.m. and 10 a.m.
According to Massport, “Uber and Lyft passengers at Logan Airport are being picked up in undersized lots with minimal coverage from the elements. The new, dedicated areas located in Central Parking are weather-protected, safer and more efficient.”
The goal is to ease congestion and make commutes faster for passengers.
“They did the same thing in San Francisco. It’s a little bit of an inconvenience to go to the parking garage across the way, but it’s a lot faster for the cars because they don’t have to wait for all the drop-offs,” one traveler at Logan Airport said.
Officials have put up signs, communicating the changes, throughout the airport. Messages are also being sent to passengers on Uber and Lyft apps.
