Uber Is Working On A Plan To Fix Airports

• http://www.businessinsider.com, Jim Edwards
I visited Uber's corporate HQ in San Francisco this week to see what else the company is cooking, and what else about our lives Uber might change.

It turns out that Uber is interested in airports. (Before you get too excited, we won't be seeing "Uber Helicopter" anytime soon. I asked — the answer is no.)

However, Uber is looking at ways that transportation in and around airports might be changed in such a way that — in theory — airports could carry more passengers, more efficiently.
 
You've probably noticed that when you arrive at an airport, there is a traffic jam of parked cars in front of the terminal as people unload their bags out of taxis, and the empty cabs pull away. Airport statisticians care about this bottleneck, and refer to it as "curb churn."
