LYFT just got the "green light" to begin picking up passengers at Logan Airport next month, the company and Massport said today.
"We are pleased to have signed an agreement with Lyft to provide our customers with as many transportation options as possible while maintaining the highest levels of security and reliability,” Massport CEO Thomas P. Glynn said in a statement. “This is something our customers requested and we’re glad to provide it as we ensure appropriate checks are in place."
Of course, Passport will profit a bit from this agreement. They will charge $3.25 for each ride (the same it charges livery vehicles). Lyft drivers will be given their own waiting area next to the livery lot. Massport has also put up signs directing passengers to a dedicated spot for Lyft pickups.
There is no news on whether or not UBER will reach an agreement with Passport. But, the agency did say they continuing negotiations with "other" companies.
"We applaud Massport's decision today to give the green light for Lyft to operate at Logan," said Adrian Durbin, a spokesman for Lyft. "Starting on February 1, travelers will be able to access safe, affordable Lyft rides directly from the airport."
