Ride-sharing service Lyft just announced that it has struck a deal with SFO to "formally authorize Lyft's operations," the company wrote in a blog post. A spokesperson clarified that Lyft drivers will be able to drop off and pick up passengers at all SFO terminals.
Normally Lyft is more cooperative with authorities and regulations than its competitors, but in this case, Sidecar actually beat it to the airport, winning approval on Oct. 14.
Uber also announced today, via blog post, that its UberX and UberXL services have gotten permission from SFO to pick up and drop off passengers from the airport. Previously, only UberBlack and UberSUV, the company's more high-end services, were allowed to do this.
In the summer of 2013, Lyft, along with Uber and Sidecar, saw some of their drivers getting arrested by SFO officials for being on airport property.
