Airport requests

Separate from state and local regulatory agencies, airport authorities have the ability to regulate commercial activity taking place on airport property, including ridesharing. Generally, in order to operate at airports, rideshare platform companies are required to enter into agreements or obtain permits prepared and enforced by each individual airport authority. These agreements vary by airport and often require rideshare platform companies to report information such as monthly trip volumes (airport pickups and dropoffs). Many agreements additionally require Uber to report when vehicles enter and exit the airport area; where vehicles pick up and drop off within the airport area; and/or each vehicle’s license plate number.
