Palmerston North Airport and Uber team up
24 September 2021
Getting to and from Palmerston North Airport (PNAL) is now made easier thanks to the formalised arrangement between Uber and PNAL to deliver a streamlined experience for travellers and visitors alike.
“After months of lockdown and a few cancelled holidays, being able to push a button and get a ride when you touch down at Palmerston North airport will make it easier than ever for domestic, and eventually international visitors, alike,” he said.
“Since Uber launched in New Zealand in 2014, locals and visitors alike have been looking to Uber to access a tech transport platform which includes GPS-tracked rides, an in-app Safety Toolkit, 24/7 customer support and feedback after every trip. And in 2019, visitors from more than 83 countries relied on the Uber app while travelling in Aotearoa.”
Uber’s platform connects driver-partners with riders. Riders can use the Uber app to request a ride. When a nearby driver partner accepts a rider’s request, the app displays an estimated time of arrival for the driver partner heading to the pickup location. The Uber app is free to download on Apple Store or Google Play Store.
