Sidecar will be the first transportation network company allowed to operate legally at a California airport when it begins operations at San Francisco International Airport in the next 30 days, SFO officials announced Tuesday.
The airport is also in talks with Uber and Lyft to begin operating there, but so far neither company has signed a similar permit, SFO officials said.
The permit for all three companies is identical, but logistical discussions continue with Uber and Lyft, such as how to track how many vehicles are coming through the airport, SFO spokesman Doug Yakel said.
Yakel said Sidecar will be charged $3.85 for each trip to the airport, a fee similar to what taxi and limo services pay to operate there.
The airport first established the permitting process for TNCs in April after the California Public Utilities Commission set new regulations requiring permits at airports.
