Logan to consider building land-side train to replace shuttle buses

Per an article in the Boston Globe, Massport will conduct a feasibility study on building a train or monorail to connect the terminals and the rental car center.

Boston Globe article

In my opinion, it seems like an worthwhile thing to study but the billion-dollar price estimate certainly raises concerns. Perhaps building a third level of roadway would be a more viable option. You could have it only be for buses, which would include shuttle buses as well as hotel shuttles and Logan Express, etc.

The "Logan 2000" plan (before it was shrunken and renamed the "Logan Modernization Project" to remove the implicit deadline) included an automated people mover from the T station to all the terminals. It didn't last long, IIRC, because as costs rose they had to drop something....

i can't imagine how they'd thread a monorail, etc. through the rat's nest of structures and access roads, landside or airside. Adding the EWR train was a walk in the park by comparison.
