Cab stand workers at Boston’s Logan Airport are accused of corruption. Five men are being arraigned Wednesday on charges of taking bribes.
Cabs operating legally at Logan report to a taxi pool where they are dispatched to terminal cab stands in order. Prosecutors claim the cab stand workers collected between $20 and $40 from any cab driver who wanted to cut in line. Longer-distance fares would also be steered to some of the cabbies.
Some of the drivers told investigators this system nearly doubled their daily earnings.
