Ride Sharing Adds to the Crush of Traffic at Airports

Ride Sharing Adds to the Crush of Traffic at Airports

Traffic at the airports—even before you get inside—has gotten worse. The cause is not just the record number of travelers. It’s also the shift to ride sharing.

Key findings

The congestion problem starts with this: More people are flying than ever.

Both Uber and Lyft offer a feature called rematch, which allows drivers who have dropped off passengers to pick up another fare without leaving the airport and waiting in the off-site staging lot.

Ride-share companies are also rolling out a system where passengers who request a ride receive a code that they can give to any car in the Lyft or Uber line rather than searching for a specific driver.
