We have received news from Erin Clarke, owner and operator of a Seaport District transportation company:
On Tuesday, November 3rd, at a monthly meeting of the Taxi Association
hosted by World Trade Center Boston, Massport agreed to classify the
entire Seaport District as a "short job" for taxi's from Logan Airport.
This classification permits cab drivers at Logan to bring passengers to
the Seaport District without sacrificing their place in line. Because
they are able to serve the Seaport District quickly and with "short job"
status, cab drivers can return to Logan and take a place at the front of
the line. This is good for the Seaport District because it reduces the
frustration of cab drivers who regularly wait over an hour for a fare
and are frustrated if the fare is not a long one. "Short job"
classification makes the Seaport District more attractive for cab
drivers and improves the service for passengers. World Trade Center
worked with Massport to secure this benefit for the entire Seaport
SAND congratulates MASSPORT on this effort to improve public transportation in the Seaport District.
