Uber to Stop Service at Ontario Airport After Fee Increase

ONTARIO, CALIF. (AP) — Uber says it's stopping its service at Southern California's Ontario International Airport because of fee increases.
KABC-TV reported Sunday that the airport east of Los Angeles now charges the ride-hailing company $4 for a pickup and $4 for a drop-off. The new fees went into effect July 1.
Uber calls the charges unfair because taxi cabs and limousines are assessed a single $3 fee.
Ontario said in a statement that Lyft, Uber's main competitor, will continue to operate at the airport.

This just goes to show how RIDICULOUSLY arrogant Uber is, if the airport wanted to charge $10 per pick up and drop off it is they're property and they're right. Let the PAX, decide if they want to pay. Instead uber feels they deserve special treatment. How would Uber feel if the federal government made them pay minimum of.50 cents a mile over the federal milage deduction of.54 cents per mile? They would be crying bloody murder. Especially considering that in some markets they are paying below the federal deduction, an amount that the government has deemed as the basic cost per mile to operate a vehicle. No wonder they are losing billions per quarter. They run Uber like an entitled fantasy land, not like a business.

And who pays the ultimate price?
The drivers, with reduced passenger opportunities.

The Problem is Not Uber
The Problem is powerless drivers that continue to chauffeur Uber’s clients perpetuating nonemployee exploitation

I agree, not only limiting driver "ride share" Opportunities, but also PAX. Almost borders on a type of discrimination for that area. Uber is not going to care until municipalities cities, county's and states start demanding standards for drivers. Either that or until they get sued into oblivion for not really standing by terms of service

This is Uber complaining and spreading fake news. Why would someone pay both a pickup and dropoff charge for one passenger unless you pick them up at the airport and just ;leave the property and return them their. Dropoff or pickup is still only one fee.

Airports get rated on factors such as on-time departures, restaurant amenities, and ease of access to rideshare services so there is a downside to airports in addition to lost revenue from rider fees.

If their ratings are as important as ours, I don't think they care.

After all, in most cities, there is one major airport. If you are flying, you are using it no matter what the rating. In cities with 2 airports, price and convenience are still more important than some rating.

Sure, no doubt about it.
But some airport administrator is being evaluated on his job performance based on the airport rating. A recent article about CLT mentioned rideshare access as one criterion. That's what made me think of it.

Airports play a considerable role in economic development, and the most important cargo they move is people.

Airports are much more than places to catch planes, attend an in-transit business meeting, or do some duty-free shopping; they are among the largest investments a city and region make.

If a city has a poorly rated airport, a large ???convention??? might chose another city specifically because they want their attendees to enjoy the experience Starting at Wheels Down
