Ground Transportation Rule »

NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULEMAKING

PROPOSED AMENDED AND RESTATED GROUND TRANSPORTATION RULE
JACKSON HOLE AIRPORT BOARD
March 3, 2017

BACKGROUND:

A variety of commercial ground transportation services are available to and from the Jackson Hole Airport (the “Airport”), including taxis, executive service providers, shuttles, courtesy vehicles and bus services. The Jackson Hole Airport Board (the “Board”) regulates ground transportation businesses on the Airport through a “Ground Transportation Rule,” seasonal “ground transportation plans” adopted pursuant to the Rule, and agreements with individual ground transportation providers.

The Wyoming Legislature has recently adopted Enrolled Act No. 84 (the “Act”), which creates Chapter 20 of Title 31, Wyoming Statutes, authorizing “transportation network companies” (TNCs”) such as Uber and Lyft to operate in Wyoming.

PROPOSED RULE:

Before it can enter into agreements with TNCs authorizing them to do business on the Airport, the Board must amend its existing Ground Transportation Rule. The Board therefore proposes to amend and restate its Rule to, among other things, (1) provide that TNC’s are a separate class of ground transportation provider at the Airport, (2) require TNCs operating at the Airport to comply in all respects with the Act, and (3) authorize TNCs to enter into an operating agreement with the Airport Board, so TNC’s drivers and/or vehicles may pick-up or drop-off passengers or property at the Airport.

Copies of the proposed amended and restated Ground Transportation Rule are on file at the Airport’s administrative office and copies may be obtained from the Executive Director.

COMMENTS:

The Airport Board solicits comments on the proposed amended and restated Ground Transportation Rule. Written comments and opinions should be submitted no later than April 12, 2017. They should be addressed to:

Jim Elwood, A.A.E., Executive Director
Jackson Hole Airport
P.O. Box 159
Jackson, Wyoming 83001
Jim.Elwood@jhairport.org

PUBLIC HEARING:

The Airport Board will hold a public hearing on the proposed Ground Transportation Rule on April 19, 2017, commencing at 8:00 a.m. in the Board Room at the Jackson Hole Airport.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

Further information of the proposed amended and restated Ground Transportation Rule may be obtained upon request at the above address or by calling (307) 733-7682.

Dated this 3rd day of March, 2017.

Uber Comes to Wyoming and the Jackson Hole Airport »

Uber Comes to Wyoming and the Jackson Hole Airport

Uber plans to start service across the state of Wyoming at 5 pm Friday March 3 including Jackson.
March 3, 2017

Governor Matt Mead intends to sign legislation at 2 p.m. today making it legal for transportation network companies like Uber and Lyft to operate in Wyoming. Uber has launched Wyoming as its newest location on their website, www.uber.com.

It is important to know, service will not immediately be available to and from the airport as the new service requires a change to the existing Ground Transportation Rule. This necessitates a formal public notice and public hearing process which has started effective today.

“The Airport is excited about additional transportation opportunities for customers. However, there are some additional steps required first,” said Jim Elwood, Executive Director. “We appreciate the community’s patience during this process.”
