Uber given two vehicle spaces
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Dec. 9, 2015) — The Louisville Regional Airport Authority has reached an agreement with Uber Technologies, Inc. to increase transportation opportunities for passengers at Louisville International Airport.
“We are pleased to welcome Uber as our newest ground transportation business partner here at Louisville International,” said Skip Miller, executive director of the Louisville Regional Airport Authority. “Uber is the latest Transportation Network Company (TNC) to offer a convenient option for airport travelers and guests.”
Uber will have two vehicle spaces on the lower (arrival) level of the commercial curb for passenger pickup. In addition, the company will have a limited staging area in the cell phone waiting lot. Passengers who have requested a ride through the mobile Uber app should follow the Ground Transportation signs inside the terminal and look for the Uber signs and black painted curb just beyond the red-columned, bus-loading area.
Uber 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 Louisville International. Uber and Lyft are the only TNCs authorized to pick-up passengers at the airport.
“We are delighted to build on our continued commitment to meeting consumer demand with pick up services at the Louisville International Airport,” said Casey Verkamp, Uber general manager. “This agreement gives thousands of Uber users in Louisville, along with visitors to the area, access to the convenience of Uber from the moment they arrive.”
