Ride sharing app offered at Thunder Bay airport

Taxi competitor provides passenger pickup, dropoff service

Passengers frequenting Thunder Bay Airport can access a local ride-sharing app, URIDE.

URIDE drivers will now have the capability to pick up and drop off passengers at their designated spot on the curb in front of the air terminal building.

Passengers are also given the option to include their flight number to ensure a timely pickup or dropoff to and from the airport.

“My team and I look forward to providing reliable, affordable rides to the people of Thunder Bay for years to come,” said URIDE founder Cody Ruberto in an April 20 news release.

“The partnership with the airport allows URIDE to help provide other transportation options to passengers, as well as the potential to save substantially compared to parking options. Customers can book now, or reserve a ride in advance. This partnership marks an important step into the future for URIDE, the airport, and transportation in Thunder Bay.”

Airport authority president Ed Schmidtke said they’re “keen to work with new companies to expand the transportation options available to air travellers to and from the airport.”
