San Francisco Airport Lunacy Causing Huge Traffic Congestion

San Francisco does not allow Uber and Lyft to pick up at arrivals. The result is humorous, for those on the outside.

This Tweet caught my eye today.

Let that sink in.

Departure drop offs happen at the arrivals.

Arrival pickups happen at the departure gate.

The poster blames technology for the snafu, but the problem is idiotic airport regulations.

Check out the bureaucratic solution: Two-Tier Pricing for Curbside Drop-Offs.

No one is going to walk around with luggage to save the $3.80 curbside fee.

I saw a Tweet earlier but cannot find it now that said the arrival gate is now low traffic because few want to pay absurd taxi rates. If accurate, arrivals and departures now both happen at departure.

Wonderful.

The taxi business is a walking zombie. The best solution is to let it die.
