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.”
