A few years ago, there were talks of a moving walkway at Logan Airport to carry travelers from Terminal E to the MBTA Airport station, but this never came to be. Instead, we still see shuttle buses connecting the Silver Line and Blue Line to airport terminals.
Now, the Massachusetts Port Authority is running a study to see if, instead of moving walkways, an automated “People Mover” such as an elevated monorail could be the answer to Logan Airport’s ground transit woes. This map on the Boston Globe displays the potential monorail loop.
Of course, building a monorail would be expensive. MassPort estimates it could be a ten year, $1 billion project, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
What do you think? Should Logan Airport replace shuttle buses with a people mover? Vote in our poll and add your comments in the section below.
