Fresno Yosemite International Airport has entered into an agreement with ridesharing service Lyft to immediately provide pickup services for travelers, the city announced Friday.

Lyft drivers will be able to pick up passengers at a designated curbside area between the front of the terminal and baggage claim.

Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin said the agreement provides more choices for travelers and creates more economic opportunities for local Lyft drivers.

The agreement follows California Public Utilities Commission rules governing transportation network companies that operate at any California airport.
