The airports in Montreal and Quebec City now accept Uber fares to and from their facilities, slowing travelers to request rides with the Uber app. The ride-sharing giant has signed a deal with the two busiest airports in Quebec, allowing the company to accept fares to the terminals and back into Montreal and Quebec City.
Trudeau International Airport in Montreal and Jean Lesage International Airport in Quebec City now both support Uber drivers to operate on their grounds.
“We are pleased to announce today that Quebecers and travelers will now be able to rely on Uber’s services as soon as they land at the Quebec City and Montreal airports,” Uber Canada said in a statement released Monday.
Uber has previously been prevented from operating at the airports because of its position as an unregulated company. However, the province of Quebec has recently introduced a pilot program to adopt ride-sharing companies. This temporary year-long framework has opened the door for Uber to strike deals with the airports.
The company welcomed the deal in a statement:
“While Quebec City has recently been named the ‘Best Destination in Canada’, Montreal is preparing to celebrate its 375th anniversary, and many travelers and tourists will stay in Quebec,” the statement said.
“Our priority remains to continue to offer quality, fast and affordable service so that the Quebec experience is always the best.”
