San Francisco Airport Lunacy Causing Huge Traffic Congestion

Authored by Mike Shedlock via MishTalk,

San Francisco does not allow Uber and Lyft to pick up at arrivals.

The result is humorous, for those on the outside.

This Tweet caught my eye today.

It’s illegal for Uber & Lyft to pickup at SFO’s arrivals level, so they pickup at departures. This has made congestion so bad, there’s now a sign encouraging drop-offs to go to arrivals. So now departures go to arrivals & arrivals go to departures because tech fixes everything.

Let that sink in.

Departure drop offs happen at the arrivals.

Arrival pickups happen at the departure gate.

The poster blames technology for the snafu, but the problem is idiotic airport regulations.

Check out the bureaucratic solution: Two-Tier Pricing for Curbside Drop-Offs.

No one is going to walk around with luggage to save the $3.80 curbside fee.

The Uber Lyft routing scheme at airports is just brain dead. Match drivers and px when they are both at the curb not when they are 10min away. Need instant ride button that px hits and means “I’m on the curb and ready” combined with better location for drivers. BT beacon

I saw a Tweet earlier but cannot find it now that said the arrival gate is now low traffic because few want to pay absurd taxi rates. If accurate, arrivals and departures now both happen at departure.

Wonderful.

The taxi business is a walking zombie. The best solution is to let it die.
