Boston Logan's Airport to Offer Free Transportation to Curb Airport Parking

JUNE 12, 2012 - GADLING - Chris Owen -- At Boston's Logan International, airport parking is a problem. Laws prevent building more parking facilities. To discourage overflow at existing lots, parking fees were raised sky high. Still, the demand is there and something had to be done about it.

"Logan has tried various ways to curb parking demand and wean passengers from driving to the airport," said David Mackey of Massport, the state agency that operates the airport, reports MSNBC.

In March, transport officials tried raising airport parking fees to an all-time high of $27 per day while cutting fees to $7 a day at suburban lots that provide direct bus service to the airport. That had little effect.

In a three-month pilot program that starts Wednesday, Boston Logan will become the first major airport in the United States to offer free transportation to and from downtown. It is an effort to cut cars both on the road and in parking lots at the fourth-busiest passenger hub in the Northeast. Read Full Logan Airport Parking Story.
