Announcing Uber Services Now Available at Redmond Municipal Airport

May-25-2017

The City of Redmond recently approved an Airport Operating Agreement with two Transportation Network Companies (TNC’s) Lyft and Uber, also known as “Rideshare” Companies. They will be allowed to conduct business at the Redmond Municipal Airport (RDM) beginning Thursday, May 25, 2017. Both companies will operate their digital network-based services alongside the taxicab, town car, and shuttle services currently available to RDM passengers. A complete list of passenger ground transportation options is located online at http://www.flyrdm.com

Zachary Bass, Redmond Airport Director said in a statement, “We’re thrilled that these rideshare opportunities are now available for travelers to and from RDM and would like to thank the City and the Airport team for its collaborative efforts to bring safe, reliable and affordable transportation options to the airport.” Mr. Bass also stated that, “One of the Airport’s core values is customer service, and one of the ways to fulfill that is to provide a wide array of transportation options.”

Lyft and Uber will connect with passengers in a designated pick-up area on the west side of the main terminal near the vendor parking lot. “Rideshare” drivers must wait off airport property and are prohibited from loitering at the airport until they have been matched for a customer pick-up. “Rideshare” vehicles are required to display a form of exterior identification on the vehicle and like taxis, are subject to vehicle inspections.
