Hybrids Get Preferential Treatment at Logan

Driving a hybrid into Logan just got a whole lot nicer in Boston with the new incentives program announced by Mayor Menino yesterday.

Hybrid car owners who drive to Logan Airport in Boston will be eligible to get preferred parking. The program will start in May, with more than 100 parking spaces being reserved in central parking, terminal B, E and in the economy parking lots.

Cab drivers who use vehicles with alternative fuels will get to move to the head of the line to pick up passengers. Cab drivers can obtain these low emission vehicles by applying for $25,000 in grant money.

"This move allows clean cabs to spend more time collecting fares and less time waiting in line," said Boston Mayor Tom Menino.

"The city is actually allowing cab owners to charge more in rental fees to the cab driver, and the driver obviously, is realizing this in the savings of fuel," said Mark Cohen of the Boston Police Licensing Division.
