Feedback on Uber and Lyft at the NYS fair
This year, there are many firsts for The Great New York State Fair. But, one of the most popular has been the Uber and Lyft drop-off and pick-up area across from Gate 3.
We talked to ride sharing drivers who say everything has gone very smoothly and they think the set-up at the fair is perfect.
"It's been going well so far. It's been keeping us busy for sure. It's a great service for customers to come to the fair and enjoy it," says Jayme Sellars, Uber and Lyft driver.
With record breaking crowds this year at the fair, both Uber and Lyft customers and drivers say the flow of traffic at Gate 3 has been running with great efficiency.
"It helps traffic get through. You're able to just hop in and pull off. Everyone knows where you're getting picked up and dropped off," says Matt Applebe, Lyft customer.
It's a service many say they're grateful for, especially the ones who don't have to worry about having a designated driver.
