Are Lyft or Uber allowed to pick up at San Francisco International Airport? SFO appears to be within Lyft's coverage map, but I know special rules sometimes apply at airports.

I waited till the last minute before a convention to look for car rentals. I won't let that happen again.

edited to add As noted in the comment below, I was able to get a Lyft ride from SFO to my destination.

According to Uber, it is possible, it even lists suggested prices from the airport to San Francisco and Palo Alto, one more thing:

Trips to or from SFO on uberX, UberBLACK, or UberSUV are subject to a $4 airport surcharge and any applicable tolls.

  • A fare-checking site that I can't currently find a link to accepted SFO as a starting point and quotes prices for Uber and Lyft.
