On this episode, we talk with Baraki about the history Lyft has had working with airports, its rocky start, and how he and the rest of his team is working to not only improve their relationships, but also help airports position themselves for the future. Baraki goes into detail about the process Lyft goes through before they offer service to an airport, as well as some of the roadblocks they face and simple solutions to over come them.

Finally, we talk about the future of ride sharing and what impact driverless cars might have on airports.

Fairbanks International Airport Baggage Transport Conveyor Enhanced With Mod Drive™ System


Fairbanks International Airport Baggage Transport Conveyor Enhanced With Mod Drive™ System

Airports face a host of unique industry challenges, such as meeting efficiency regulations and seeking out the best maintenance practices to reduce costs and keep operations flowing. In today’s current economic climate, any potential cost savings can go a long way. 

In 2019, Alaska’s Fairbanks International Airport (FAI) sought to modernize its equipment and operations. They were dissatisfied with the performance of the gearmotors on their baggage transport conveyors and began searching for new suppliers. Regal approached FAI with a solution that could improve equipment performance and simplify maintenance, with the added benefit of energy cost savings: the Hub City® MOD Drive™ system.

This white paper discusses the hardware deployed, the test results and the annualized expectations for ROI.
