The ride-sharing company Lyft has signed an agreement with Sacramento International Airport allowing drivers to operate at the airport.
The agreement went into effect Monday afternoon, according to a news release from the Sacramento County Department of Airports.
The permit applies to all Lyft drivers. Passengers can meet Lyft cars where hotel shuttles and cab companies pick up passengers: at the west end of Terminal A and the south end of Terminal B, outside Door 1.
Ride-sharing companies consider their drivers independent contractors who operate private vehicles. Drivers are matched with passengers via a phone- or tablet-based app. The companies are regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission, which sets requirements for safety and liability.

Sacramento International Airport gave the Uber ride-share service the green light in September to drop off and pick up passengers and others on airport grounds.
