Colorado Springs, Colorado — Colorado Springs Airport (COS) encourages passengers to wait for boarding after landing because the carpooling company is suffering from a staff shortage.
The airport states on its website: “A nationwide shortage of land transport drivers is affecting airports across the country. Travelers have considerable waiting times for available taxi, ride app drivers (such as Uber and Lyft), and other car services. It should be noted that there may be. “
According to the airport, after arriving at COS, some passengers had a hard time finding land transportation. Because of that challenge, the airport reminds passengers about a white airport paging phone that asks for help when the plane lands.
If the passenger chooses to use the airport pager phone, the passenger will be connected to the airport communication center to help them connect to the rideshare or taxi company.
NS Lack of rideshare and taxi drivers It’s not new. Many companies, such as Uber and Lyft, have been struggling for months to keep up with rising passenger demand.
Several factors contribute to the shortage, including concerns about COVID-19, demands for increases, and the switch from driver deliveries to deliveries such as grocery and takeaway orders.
For local passengers looking for a ride, a COS spokesman urged guests to plan ahead and, if possible, already wait for a ride at the airport.
