Today Lyft and Uber both announced that their car services are allowed at San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

The two companies join Sidecar which announced last week that it would be delivering and picking up passengers from the airport.

One odd bit of news is that Sidecar stated its Shared Rides feature would not operate out of the airport. Uber on the other hand stated today that Uber Pool, its shared-ride feature, would be available for airport trips.

Update: Lyft tells TNW that Lift Line, its shared-ride service, will also be available for trips to and from SFO.

So now the Bay Area has even more options to get to the airport besides, taxis, BART, bus, hassling friends, etc.
