IMPERIAL, Pa. (AP) - Allegheny County Airport Authority officials have approved a policy that lets ride-sharing companies pick up passengers at Pittsburgh International Airport.

Until now, companies like Uber, Lyft and Yellow Z have been allowed to take passengers to the airport about 10 miles west of the city, but not pick them up.

But County Executive Rich Fitzgerald announced the new policy Tuesday and says Uber, based in San Francisco, has received the first permit.

The permit for ride-sharing services to pick up passengers at the airport is $12,000, plus a $14,000 security deposit and a fee of $2.90 per passenger.

Uber riders will pay that company’s standard fares, plus the $2.90 fee, to get rides from the airport.

Lyft and Yellow Z have been provided the permit information, but have yet to apply.
