Louisville International Airport adds first ridesharing service

Lyft will be available beginning Monday

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Nov. 5, 2015) — Beginning Monday passengers at the Louisville International Airport will have an additional ground-transportation option through an agreement between the Louisville Regional Airport Authority and Lyft.

“Transportation network companies are popular with travelers as an affordable, convenient ground-transportation option,” said Skip Miller, executive director of the Louisville Regional Airport Authority. “We are pleased to have Lyft join our ground transportation business partners at SDF.”

Under the one-year pilot program, Lyft will have two vehicle spaces on the lower (arrival) level of the commercial curb for passenger pickup. In addition, Lyft will have a limited staging area in the cell phone waiting lot. Passengers who have requested a ride through Lyft should follow the Ground Transportation signs inside the terminal and look for the “Lyft pink” signs and painted curb just beyond the red-columned bus loading area.

“Since our launch in Louisville over a year and a half ago, residents and visitors have embraced Lyft’s safe, affordable rides,” said Bakari Brock, senior director of business operations for Lyft. “We’re excited to be the first ridesharing partner of Louisville International.”

Lyft will pay a $2 trip fee for every pick up from the airport and a monthly business privilege fee of $500. There is not a trip fee paid to the airport for dropping passengers off at SDF. Lyft is the only TNC currently authorized to pick up passengers from SDF.
