Statement by Fresno Yosemite International Airport in Response to Raiser – CA’s (Uber) Decision to Discontinue Operations at the Fresno Airport

May 01, 2017 No Comments by

FRESNO, CA – Raiser-CA (aka Uber) has decided to discontinue operating at Fresno Yosemite International Airport rather than complying with the airport operating agreement. An airport operating agreement is required by California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) regulations for Transportation Network Companies (TNC) to operate at any airport in California. Uber and Lyft have both operated at Fresno Yosemite under agreements with identical requirements since the inception of their operations last year. Lyft has been, and remains in full compliance and will continue to serve the airport.

The requirement at issue is that each TNC must coordinate with the Airport’s designated Third Party Clearinghouse to enable activity tracking and reporting. The Clearinghouse service is provided by the Airport at no cost to the TNC. The reporting information is a tool used to enhance public safety and for managing and planning its infrastructure. Fresno Yosemite continues to encourage Raiser-CA to reconsider their position and enhance service to their customers.

Fresno Yosemite International Airport currently offers Valley passengers daily non-stop flights to Dallas, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Portland, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, and Guadalajara, Mexico on domestic and international carriers. Fresno Yosemite International Airport is a municipally owned entity operating as a self-supporting enterprise. No City of Fresno general funds are used to operate Fresno Yosemite International Airport or Fresno Chandler Executive Airport.
