Uber gets OK to service GSP
Uber, a transportation network, can operate at GSP International Airport, according to airport officials Friday.

Under the agreement, Uber drivers are no longer required to register individually with the airport district and are authorized to drop-off and/or pick-up at GSP.

Passengers and others traveling to and from GSP can access the ride booking service by opening the Uber App on their smartphone. Traditional ground transportation providers will still be available to customers who do not wish to be served by Uber.

Uber drivers will wait for a transportation request in a designated area a short distance from the terminal, according to the agreement. Once a request is received, the driver will proceed to the terminal to locate and pick up the requesting rider from the green zone area located on the front curb outside of baggage claim.

“In this day and age, allowing Uber to operate at GSP is the right thing to do at the right time,” said GSP Airport District President/CEO Dave Edwards. “Uber provides our passengers an additional choice that is both innovative and convenient and that is what our passengers have said they needed, innovation and convenience.”
