ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The Uber ride-sharing service is getting city permission to operate temporarily at the Albuquerque International Sunport.

Mayor Richard Berry’s office says Albuquerque and Uber have entered a temporary agreement in compliance with existing city ordinances and state laws to allow Uber drivers to provide an on-demand transportation option.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that the official announcement of the agreement is expected to be made by Berry late Tuesday afternoon.

Unlike traditional taxi businesses, Uber uses a smart-phone program to connect people seeking rides with people who have cars.
