How can you get a quality and affordable ride from the airport? In the U.S. the answer greatly depends on local regulations and fees.
CEO and Co-founder Jens Wohltorf calls American airports “regulatory islands.” These are mapped in the Blacklane U.S. Airport Pickup Digest, a new infographic published today. Blacklane’s research shows travelers the state of airport pickups for ride-hailing, legacy limousine providers, and Blacklane.
The key findings:
- 49 of the top 100 U.S. airports prohibit ride-hailing pickups by private individuals
- Legacy chauffeur company rates are 80 percent more than taxis for airport rides
- Blacklane’s rates are a fraction of the cost of legacy limousine services
