This is great news for constant travelers like me. I'm at Logan at least two to three times a month. And sometimes when I get back during rush hour, the line at the cash toll booth is miles long.

Starting June 2, Boston taxi drivers traveling through the Boston Harbor Tunnels to and from Logan Airport will be forced to use Fast Lane transponders at toll plazas or risk receiving citations, as part of effort announced Thursday by state transportation officials to ease traffic and provide smoother rides for customers.

I wonder if this will have any financial impact on customers. It's already pretty expensive to get to the airport after all the tunnel fees. But I'm usually in a hurry going to and from the airport, so it'll be worth it if the cabs can take the fast lane.

    I'm sitting in a cab with fast lane but the driver is going through the cash line. The line is at least 20 cars long and he's clearly doing this to drive up the meter. Obviously this is not being enforced. I asked the driver "don't you have fastlane?" And was just ignored

    I feel your pain. I just returned to Boston as well and my cab driver didn't use the Fast Lane either. I checked and he definitely had one fixed to the windshield, but he still ended up going in the cash lane.

    we sometime just want to get some change from the toll booth, and for some customer request for a toll receipt, take those in consideration!!
