SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Airport ride service Wingz is now operating in San Diego.
Wingz is a San Francisco based company that provides rides to and from the airport and accepts pre-arranged bookings. Passengers are charged a flat rate, as opposed to Uber's surge pricing. The company admits that though their rates might be more than the competition, the reliability of their products will be a major selling point.
Travelers can book their rides on the company's website or through a mobile application. One of the perks of using Wingz is that their service rates do not change once a ride has been booked.
Wingz drivers undergo background checks, vehicle checks, training and are provided with a liability insurance policy.
Regular customers also have the option of requesting previous drivers when booking their rides.
Wingz currently operates at 10 airports in California and at 5 additional airports in Texas, Colorado and Washington.
