CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A Yeager Airport committee is meeting to discuss a contract with the ride-hailing service Uber.

The Central West Virginia Regional Airport Authority’s financial committee will meet Wednesday to discuss the contract.

Uber began offering rides in Charleston and Morgantown last week. Uber officials say they hope to expand services.
