It’s Time for Rideshare Pickups at Sea-Tac
Every day, hundreds of thousands of people in the Puget Sound region can request safe, reliable, and affordable transportation at the tap of a button because of ridesharing.
Unfortunately, there’s one place in our community where uberX ridesharing isn’t available: Sea-Tac Airport. Right now uberX rideshare driver-partners are only allowed to drop passengers off at the airport – not pick them up.
Let airport officials know you want more choice in transportation options, and that uberX rideshare pickups at Sea-Tac Airport will benefit travelers, drivers, and the local community.
uberX ridesharing helps our region thrive by:
Growing Small Businesses
Uber partners with thousands of drivers who drop riders off at Sea-Tac and are forced to return to Seattle or Tacoma for their next pickup because the Port Commission has blocked rideshare pickups at the airport. We believe all drivers deserve the right to earn a living at Sea-Tac, regardless of the make and model of their vehicle.
With competition comes innovation and improved customer service. Sea-Tac travelers should have the right to choose their preferred mode of transportation, whether it’s with Uber or another provider.
Supporting the Port of Seattle’s Century Agenda Environmental Vision
Tens of thousands of uberX rideshare trips end at Sea-Tac each week, but drivers can’t pick up passengers at the airport. These one-way fare or “deadhead” trips accounted for 2 million pounds of C02 emissions in 2015, and this figure is expected to jump to over 3 million pounds in 2016.
The Port of Seattle has been discussing rideshare pickups at Sea-Tac for more than a year. Tomorrow the Port Commission has the ability to expand opportunity and choice. Tell the Commission it’s time for more transportation options at the airport.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
