ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) – Getting to the airport in 2019 is as easy as tapping your phone.
Ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft are on the rise at Rochester International Airport, according to Andy Moore, the Rochester Airport Director.
“Lyft and Uber at airports is a relatively new phenomenon,” said Moore. “And we are starting to look at those numbers on an annual basis, and quite honestly on a quarterly basis, to see if there is any impact. W’ere not seeing it at this point.”
Moore called the increase in Uber and Lyft activity a “good thing,” and emphasized customer choice coming and going from the airport.
