HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Starting Monday, passengers at Huntsville International Airport will have an additional option for ground transportation. Ride-sharing company Uber has been given the go-ahead to operate at the airport.

Airport officials made the announcement Friday.

“We are pleased to have Uber join Lyft as our newest ground transportation company at Huntsville International Airport,” said Rick Tucker, Executive Director of the Port of Huntsville.  “Our goal was to craft an agreement with Uber that would bring a new transportation solution while also meeting the needs of our existing ground transportation providers.”

To date, the app-based service is available at 300 plus airports on sin continents. The airport has a designated ride-share pick-up area for passengers that would like to use the service.  This area will be alongside the hotel shuttles in front of baggage claim.
