BOSTON — Officials at Boston’s Logan Airport will spend $15 million to study the feasibility of adding a people mover or monorail to connect the airport to the nearest transit station, outlying parking, and a rental-car center, the Boston Globe reports.

The move is an effort to reduce traffic congestion at the airport. The rail system would replace shuttle buses which currently connect the airport to the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s Blue Line subway, as well as rental cars and the economy parking lots.

Officials at the Massachusetts Port Authority, which runs the airport, say the new system could take 10 years and a billion dollars to complete — if the study determines it is feasible.

The complete Globe report is available here.
