Uber isn’t ubiquitous
“Uber and its junior counterpart Lyft have grown so fast that many business travelers think the ride-sharing services are everywhere. They’re not — and that’s especially true at airports, many of which push back against unlicensed and unregulated drivers. The solution? Download the apps of Flywheel and Curb, two services that offer on-demand pick-up from traditional taxi companies and other licensed drivers. Meanwhile, Groundlink is one of several apps that connect you to traditional black-car operators. And always have Salk International’s Airport Transit Guide on your mobile devices. It details all public and private options for traveling between the airport and the city.”–JOESENTME, 10/2/15
