    MassPort to Vote on Rideshare Rules for Logan

    Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker is backing a plan to create a central location at Logan International Airport where ride-hailing companies like Uber and Lyft can pick up and drop off passengers.

    Under the proposal, all pickups and drop-offs would be directed to the airport's central garage. The plan would increase fees on pickups from $3.25 to $5 and impose a new $5 fee for drop-offs.

    Baker said Wednesday too many ride-hailing drivers are coming into the airport empty to pick up a rider while too many others are leaving empty after dropping off a rider — causing thousands of extra trips each day.

    Ride-hailing companies say the changes would make trips to the airport more expensive and less convenient.
