No Uber At Albany Airport

Ride sharing is nearly two weeks old and there are already a few hiccups in the system. People all over the Capital Region are using either Uber or Lyft to get around, but not every place is accepting of the programs. When ride sharing was announced last Thursday, I was excited to give it a try for the first time. I went on an Uber ride with my new driver, Pam and the experience was a good one. We also learned that ride sharing isn’t just for safe driving for a night out, it’s also to get to local destinations.

Now, you aren’t able to get Uber at Albany International Airport. But the app allows for you to be picked up at the airport. Both options have not been approved so police are patrolling to make sure no Uber drivers are working. They say they will get a warning at first and then be ticketed with the next violation.

According to authorities, Uber failed to sign a petition that would allow the airport to receive $2 per ride. Lyft has signed the petition and are able to serve both pick-ups and drop-offs at the airport. A spokesperson for the airport said they’ve been working with Uber for several weeks to come to an agreement. Uber is hoping that the agreement will be reached soon.

How has your Uber or Lyft experiences been so far?
