Yeager Airport, Uber Reach Tentative Contract

CHARLESTON– Ride-booking service Uber has reached a tentative contract to serve Charleston’s Yeager Airport.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports airport director Terry Sayre said he hopes to have Uber operating at the airport by this weekend.

Uber and Sayre said Uber will pay the airport $3,200 annually to support operations and enforcement.

A law that took effect last year lets companies like Uber and Lyft offer rides in the state. West Virginia joined scores of states that allow the phone app-based services.

Uber began offering rides in Charleston and Morgantown in July.
