Deal Allows Uber Pickups At Sacramento International Airport

  
The ridesharing company Uber signed an agreement with the airport that allows drivers to pickup and drop off passengers at its terminals, starting Tuesday  at 1 p.m. Part-time Uber driver Andrew Kanelos picked up the first fare from the airport at 1:02 p.m. He says he's planning to quit his other job and work full-time for Uber now that he can collect fares from the airport. 

Capital Public Radio's James Morrison caught a ride with Andrew from Terminal A yesterday and recorded an interview with him. Andrew started the conversation by explaining how a "geofence" had stopped Uber users from requesting a driver pick them up the airport before Tuesday's agreement.
