CHICAGO — Travelers now have another option for pickups and dropoffs at Chicago’s two major airports.

According to a statement by the company, UberX will be available at both O’Hare and Midway airports.

Fares from O’Hare to Chicago start at just $28, and fares from Midway to Chicago start at $22, the company said.The announcement comes a day after it was revealed Lyft cars will be allowed to serve the airports.

The ridesharing trend is controversial to many; cab drivers say those companies don’t face the same inspection and licensing requirements as the more expensive taxis.
