CommonWealth reports Massport thinks the answer to growing auto congestion at Logan is to do something about the estimated 15 million rides Uber and Lyft riders now take to the airport - including increasing the ride-share surcharge from $3.25 for pick ups to $5 for both pick ups and drop offs. Massport also wants to eliminate 1,000 parking spaces on the first floor of the central garage to make way for a new centralized area for ride-share drivers to go when they're hailed or dropping off.
