Uber/Lyft Logan Airport Pickups Could Start Next Month

Lyft drivers who have cleared the state's background check process will begin pick up service at Boston Logan International Airport starting February 1, 2017, said the The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport).
Massport, which operates Logan, said in a statement it was still negotiating with other ride-hailing services such as Uber.
But, according to an attorney for Massport, that could be changing as soon as next month.
Companies like Lyft and Uber, known as transportation network companies (TNC), will have a parking lot, similar to ones used by taxi cab drivers and limousine or livery companies.
Uber says they are optimistic they will be able to make a deal with Massport, as well.
The Lyft drivers will wait in the pool until they get matched to a customer through the Lyft system.
$3.25 will be charged on every ride originating at Logan, the same as traditional livery vehicles.
Massport has installed new signage at each terminal so passengers will know where to meet their TNC driver in special TNC lots near the terminals. They'll then head to the appropriate terminal to pick up their passenger.
