The Gulfport-Biloxi Regional Airport Authority approved an agreement June 9 to allow Lyft, 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. In the past, Lyft users could only get a ride to the airport. Lyft drivers began picking up airport passengers effective June 9.
“We are excited to receive our operating permit from the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport and look forward to bringing Lyft’s affordable, reliable rides to GPT in the very near future,” said Don Griffin, Lyft’s Business Development Manager, in June.
The Lyft pick-up location at Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport is in the ground transportation lane in front of the terminal.
“Visitors traveling to the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport, whether for tourism, military or business, are seeking a variety of ground transportation options to access the Mississippi Gulf Coast,” said Teckie Hinkebein, Director of Marketing at Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport. “Transportation network companies such as Lyft provide them an additional option for service.”
