“We are pleased to welcome Uber as our newest ground transportation company at Mobile Regional Airport,” said Roger Wehner, Executive Director of the Mobile Airport Authority. “We want to provide the best possible options for customers to have access to and from Mobile Regional Airport. Uber is a nationally known service provided in many cities around the country and now our passengers will have this same level of customer service available to them.”
In detail, airport officials negotiated with Uber to pay a $200 per month operating fee, the same as taxi companies, and in addition Uber will lease five designated parking spaces at $3 per month each. Consistent with our taxi agreement, they are not allowed to leave their vehicles unattended on the front of the airport, nor are they allowed to solicit fares or advertise in the terminal.
“There is robust demand in the City of Mobile for more transportation options, and particularly for ride-sharing services like Uber,” Mayor Sandy Stimpson said. “We applaud the Mobile Airport Authority for their work to extend this service to Mobile Regional Airport, which serves as a major gateway to our city.
