All Things Travel: Big Move For Rental Car Companies At Logan Airport
" BOSTON (CBS) – At 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, Logan International Airport starts a new era.

Seven car rental companies now located on the airport and two new ones, now off-airport, will move into Logan’s new consolidated rental car facility, known as Conrac, located on the south side of the airport.

Advantage and Thrifty will consolidate their operations in the new $310 million Conrac building with four floors. They will join Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, and National.

In perhaps the largest overnight move in Logan’s ninety year history, as many as 4,000 cars will be relocated from several one story locations nearby.

For the first time, all rental cars will be undercover in a 120,000 square foot new building. There are 616 solar panels on the roof that can provide 150 kilowatts of power.

The rent-a-car bus service to the terminals will also be dramatically changed at the same time.

Bigger double Massport buses, holding 50 passengers and their bags, will replace the vans for the individual companies.   Twenty-eight fuel-efficient hybrid bus trips an hour will do what 150 vans did earlier in the week "
