Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin today announced that Fresno Yosemite International Airport has finalized an agreement that will enable passengers to request rides to and from the airport with the rideshare service uberX.
The agreement takes effect immediately.
“The addition of uberX rideshare services further enhances the existing ride-sharing program and ground transportation options available at Fresno Yosemite International Airport,” said Director of Aviation Kevin Meikle.
Ride-sharing service Lyft began operating at Fresno’s airport in February of this year.
The uberX passenger drop off is in front of the airport terminal. Drivers pick up passengers curbside at a designated area located between the front of the terminal and baggage claim.
Fresno Yosemite International Airport currently offers Valley passengers daily non-stop flights to Dallas, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Portland, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Guadalajara, Mexico on domestic and international carriers.
Fresno Yosemite International Airport is a municipally owned entity operating as a self-supporting enterprise. No City of Fresno general funds are used to operate Fresno Yosemite International Airport or Fresno Chandler Executive Airport.
