The Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority announced that it has included transportation network companies in its Commercial Ground Transportation Policy.
This means rideshare networks that use online-enabled platforms to connect passengers with drivers, such as Lyft and Uber, can operate at Nashville International (BNA).
The policy governs all ground transportation service providers operating at the airport. Such businesses will have to apply for a permit, pay user fees and be clearly identified in order to offer services at BNA.
“This is a major milestone to embrace ever-evolving technology and accommodate new app-based transportation service operators,” says Rob Wigington, MNAA president and CEO. “We are continuously listening to the needs of our passengers so that we can better provide and enhance the Nashville Airports Experience.”
Adds Bakari Brock, Lyft’s director of business development: “Nashville International has stepped forward as an industry leader by becoming the first U.S. airport to include transportation network companies in its policies.”
