Ontario Airport Approves Uber, Lyft Services

A $3 charge will be added to customers' fares per regulations at ONT.

The first few days that the ride-share services Uber and Lyft have been operating at Ontario International Airport have been running smoothly, officials said Friday.

"Everything has gone according to plan," said Ontario International Airport Interim CEO Mark Thorpe.

The ride-share apps have been operating at the airport since Wednesday. Thorpe said that adding the services has been a top priority.

"It was the most requested customer amenity from airline partners and passengers," said Thorpe.

Uber and Lyft are tied to mobile apps that allow riders to order up a cab and pay through their credit cards. Recent changes to rules have allowed these kinds of services to operate at airports. LAX approved the services last year.

To use the service at Ontario, passengers must make their way to designated pickup and drop-off locations near each of the passenger terminals and the United Services Organizations Lounge.
