GULFPORT – The Gulfport-Biloxi Regional Airport Authority approved an agreement today to allow Uber, a transportation network company, to provide ride-sharing services to airport passengers.
Through the company’s mobile app, customers can now request a ride from the airport. Uber drivers will begin picking up airport passengers effective November 16.
“Every day Uber is providing safe, affordable rides and flexible earning opportunities to people in the Gulfport-Biloxi area. We are happy to soon be expanding our operations to include pickups at GPT, and thank airport officials for working with us to make this a possibility,” said Uber Public Affairs Manager Nicholas Juliano.
The Uber pick-up location at Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport is in the ground transportation lane in front of the terminal.
“Leisure and business travelers are seeking additional ground transportation options to access the Mississippi Gulf Coast,” said Teckie Hinkebein, Director of Marketing at Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport. “Uber will be added to the growing list of amenities that enhance the ease and convenience of flying out of Gulfport-Biloxi.”
