    Boston taxi prices


    Got home at about 6:30pm on Sunday. Couldn't get an Uber from Logan (because geofence) so I took a taxi home to Waltham.

    Virtually no traffic on the highways. Went home direct, no silly routes, no time-wasting.

    $74.90 plus tip.

    Go and fucking FUCK yourselves.

    You can take the Silver Line to South Station for free and get cab drivers that can speak at least some English. Or Lyft or whatever. I don't like Uber so I use Lyft, personally.

    Cab drivers have to pay a fee to even go to the airport, and also get hit for around $4-7.00 in tolls through the tunnel. It's $18 for me to take a cab to the airport and $25 to come home. I take the T unless it's real early/late.

    The cabbies there seem to be the newest of newbs and don't know the way to anything.

    Geofence? Uber a no go at Logan?

    Take the T to somewhere else and get an Uber then. More PITA but much cheaper no?

    The Silver Line bus is free to South Station or you can take a shuttle bus from the terminal to the Blue Line.

    Ya I just public transport or walk (ie. long beach airport you can walk to the street) to a point that I can Uber LOLOL

    At some airports that Uber is permitted they tag on a fee too...so I use the free shuttle to take me to the place I can Uber without the fee

    Does Logan not have airport moto parking? Some places it's free!!

    When you take the Silver Line not only is it free but you get free access to the MBTA at South Station.

    Uber will start offering airport pickups next week for cars with passenger plates pending driver background checks.

    Yeah, isn't it great when an industry is "protected" from competition? Some people <cough>Bernie<cough> want *everything* to be like that. Yay.

    I can't find evidence that Uber will be doing it, but did find that Lyft will: Lyft drivers will begin Logan pickups next month | Boston Herald

    I drive for Uber.

    They're a little behind Lyft on getting the background checks through the state.

    Effective Feb 1 any Uber driver who has been cleared by the state will be able to do pickups at Logan.
