Traffic could cost Boston billions in tourism, report says

BOSTON — BOSTON -- The cities of Boston and Cambridge stand to lose $13 billion in tourism, and it’s all because of the nightmarish traffic that scares tourists away from the area.

The Boston Globe reported Thursday morning, that visitors are cutting major destinations from their plans just to avoid the extra time it takes to travel around.

It has got so bad that Boston Duck Tours may give the ax to the Charlestown route and cut tours by about 10 minutes.

Other tour company operators said the endless construction projects, new bike lanes, Uber drivers, and just too many vehicles on the roads make it difficult to navigate.

On Boston 25 Morning News we asked you if you avoid tourist destinations in Boston because of the nightmare traffic conditions.
Of the more than 220 votes cast, 88 percent of people said they avoid the city because of traffic while 12 percent say they do not.
