News and notes from Hartsfield-Jackson, the world's busiest airport

Uber X, Lyft set for legal pickups at Atlanta airport starting Jan. 1

Calling for an Uber or Lyft pickup at the Atlanta airport is about to finally become legal.

Hartsfield-Jackson International will launch regulated pickups by Uber X and Lyft starting Sunday, with rideshare passengers paying a $3.85 surcharge per ride from the airport.

Until now rideshare pickups have been illegal because drivers didn’t have permits to serve the airport, and some were cited though enforcement was spotty.

For more on how what the $3.85 surcharge is for, how ride-share pickups will work at Hartsfield-Jackson and what else Uber X and Lyft users should know, read the full story on MyAJC.com.
