Effective 5/1/2021, Uber pickups and dropoffs are not available at Bellingham International Airport (BLI), Bellingham Cruise Terminal, and Fairhaven Station.
The Port of Bellingham has consistently increased fees without providing any benefits to riders and drivers coming through those locations. Today, these fees are 400% higher than fees in comparable locations across the US.
Additionally, these high fees disproportionately target riders and drivers on TNC platforms and hold drivers to different policies compared with other modes of commercial transportation. Uber has expressed these concerns to BLI’s leadership, but they unfortunately are not willing to lower their fees or provide improvements to the rider and/or driver experience. We hope to resume operations at BLI, Bellingham Cruise Terminal, and Fairhaven Station once the Port is willing to modify their policies.
