Gov. Charlie Baker signs law regulating Uber and Lyft in Massachusetts

BOSTON — Gov. Charlie Baker on Friday signed into law Massachusetts' first statewide regulations on ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft.

After months of contentious debate, the new law was hailed by both the ride-sharing companies and some in the taxi industry. The regulations impose a new fee on ride-sharing services and establish requirements for background checks, inspections and insurance, but still subject the services to less onerous regulations than taxi drivers face.

MCCA director says BCEC must be good neighbor as it expands

The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority will pay MassDOT $21 million to leave a key parcel of land on D Street as it prepares to re-imagine the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center’s future.

 

“Instead of building a building that cuts off and kills a neighborhood, we want to build something that’s integrated in the neighborhood,” said David Gibbons, the author­ity’s executive director. “The testing lab is kind of the linchpin in that, it’s right in the middle.”

 

Although the MCCA will demolish MassDOT’s testing lab later this year, Gibbons said the authority doesn’t have any specific plans for the parcel. The MCCA will include the land as part of a new master plan process aimed at guiding how the BCEC expands in the coming years.

“There’s nothing more rewarding to me than seeing a city-kid on a boat for the first time — smiling, confident, and amazed after catching their first fish. To keep our program running, we rely on the generosity and support of programs like the MCCA’s Community Partnership Grants. Their commitment to community programs, particularly youth programs, makes our small operation and all those smiles possible.”
