BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — "It's not too different." That's the word from numerous local rideshare drivers as the first workweek of the MBTA's Orange Line shutdown enters full stride.

Drivers at Logan Airport said getting around the city wasn't all that much worse than before the shutdown started, despite the extra buses and closed lanes on the roads. Some drivers reported a little more business in the past few days.

"It's going great, I haven't seen a single difference," said one driver. Drivers are also getting ready for the city's unofficial moving day, September 1 — and city residents are beginning to pack up and move.

"It's not too different, there's a little bit more traffic. It's going to be Allston it's going to pick up a lot, we're going to be very busy," a driver said.

Several of the drivers said they did wish they were paid an extra surcharge for driving around during the shutdown.
