Atlanta Airport Pushes Fingerprint Checks For Uber Drivers

Posted on March 29, 2016

ATLANTA – A battle over background checks for Uber drivers at the world's busiest airport comes as cities like Los Angeles and Austin, Texas, consider more thorough screenings to prevent criminals from getting behind the wheel.

Uber has objected to the Atlanta airport's plan to use fingerprints to check criminal records of its drivers, saying its own record checks are sufficient.

    Thank you atlanta airport officials !!!!!! At least one airport in the nation understands that any tranportation company should not be allowed to enter a federal property (NFL should also follow those standards) And the tech company still refuses to follow safety guidelines... they should be fined everytime they refuse to follow any safety guidelines
