Ride Sharing Legislation's Impact on the BCEC and Seaport District

"The Boston Convention and Exhibition Center is warning that the bill to regulate Uber and Lyft now before the Legislature could cut the popular ride-hailing services from a large swath of South Boston’s booming Seaport District.

 

A measure that would give licensed taxis five years of exclusive rights to the BCEC would force the convention center to use a “geo-fence,” or electronic blocker, to restrict the app-based ride-hailing services from accessing customers there, said James Folk, the BCEC’s transportation director."

GE Relocation Reveals the Innovation Hub Boston has become

"More than 40 states had vied for GE’s headquarters. Other venues started with some important advantages, such as no state income tax, lower corporate tax rates, lower energy costs, and lower housing costs. Had GE been focused on costs alone, Boston surely would have lost by a wide margin.

 

But GE had a different perspective. This is not Boston of the ’50s and ’60s, or even the 2000s. This is a Boston rich in talent, with an educational ecosystem that has spawned hundreds of startups, and, coupled with MIT, has become a global epicenter for innovation and research.
