There was a Logan Massport Surcharge & Toll' of $8.75 for passengers. Was it added to the total charge and Travis took his 25% or did they keep it all?

Haven't used Uber for two months, but before that the $8.75 was 100% for the driver just as the tolls are. So unless they change it, that is supposed to be yours. I have never received an answer as to what this Massport/Logan fee is. Looking at pricing I assume it is the $3.50 toll combined with the $5.25 Massport fee commercial/taxi drivers have to pay every time they enter the airport. Perhaps this is left over from the days before UberX, when UberBlack was the only available service. Since they encourage Black drivers to accept X rides, it would make sense that they decided to add it to every airport ride to keep rider charges consistent even though X drivers don't have to pay it. So it is basically a $5.25 bonus for your airport run on X ($5.75 if you use EZpass to pay the toll).

They're on the right track, but unfortunately suing the wrong person. Unless SF handles the fee differently than Boston, the fee is actually going to the driver and not Uber/Lyft. Which means the driver is supposed to be paying the airport the fee. I was told commercial vehicles use a transponder which automatically charges the driver the airport fee so the airport is definitely getting that fee. But any driver that doesn't have a transponder is obviously pocketing that fee. If Uber isn't paying the driver the fee they charged, then they are definitely pocketing it.

The whole fee is suppose to go to the driver, suppose to cover tolls and a little extra for driver, because they can't do a pickup at the airport, for the dead miles. Nothing for massport, they actual sued or asked uber to change the name of it, it is now called airport fee but massport is still not happy because riders think it is something massport adds on.

I just read an article about it earlier today. http://m.myinforms.com/en-us/a/1684...-uber-of-patently-false-logan-airport-charge/
