You Can Now Legally Grab An Uber Home From Adelaide Airport

You can get an Uber home from Adelaide Airport from today.

Ride-sharing services will be allowed to pick-up customers as part of a range of ground transport improvements.

To make way for the change, Adelaide Airport has constructed a new pick-up spot close to the terminal.

They'll also construct a new dedicated taxi drop-off facility adjacent to the terminal which will provide an alternative to the existing drop-off zone under the car park.

This should significantly free-up space for other drivers!

The existing taxi rank will also be upgraded to provide weather protection for customers.

The State Government and Uber have reached an agreement on accreditation giving South Aussies regulated access.

A $2 service fee will apply for all ride sharing services picking up passengers in the terminal.

That's the same as what taxi pick-ups charge at the Airport, but both will go up to $3 from October 1.

Revenue will go to investment in ground transport facilities and inititives.

It's the first rise since the terminal opened 11 years ago and is still the equal cheapest of Australis's mainland capital city airports.

Adelaide Airport Managing Director Mark Young said 'the introduction of ride-sharing would provide customers with more choice for getting from the airport to home or their accommodation'.

'The State Government’s decision to allow access to ride-sharing services has allowed us to invest in facilities to provide a better experience for our customers' he said.

Ride sharing is currently permitted at most Australian airports including Sydney, Canberra, Perth and Brisbane and similar service fees are charged there.
