Anyone who has taken a flight recently can agree: airports are getting busier, more crowded, and more difficult to navigate. That level of activity extends to the exterior of the airport as well, with taxis lined up and rideshare vehicles dominating the pickup and drop-off lanes.
But as airports get even busier, some major airports have implemented programs to try and fix the congestion.
The Proposed Solution
Major airports like LAX, Boston Logan, and San Francisco International have adopted a solution that involves moving all taxi services and ridesharing vehicles to a separate location and moving people to and from that location via an airport shuttle.
Does this cut down on the congestion? Absolutely. But it’s also a nightmare for passengers, taxis, and rideshare drivers alike. It’s extremely inconvenient, and it’s just not profitable for ridesharing drivers. During the downtime when they’re waiting for a passenger or sitting in traffic to drop someone off, they aren’t on the road making money.
For this reason, many rideshare drivers are now avoiding picking up and dropping off passengers at airports altogether. It’s a mess, it’s not profitable, and many drivers for Uber and Lyft believe it’s not worth the nuisance.
