BOSTON (AP) — Boston is expanding its use of designated ride-hailing locations to drop off and pick up riders.
Mayor Marty Walsh announced Saturday the installation of three ride-hailing drop off zones in the city's busy South Boston Seaport.
The goal is to improve safety while reducing traffic congestion linked to double parking by ride-hailing drivers.
Boston transportation officials said people stepping into traffic to enter or exit a vehicle are at risk of being hit by a car or bicycle.
Logan International Airport last year began requiring ride-hailing drivers to pick up and drop off passengers at a central location.
