Apply - Moratorium

Please note that there is a moratorium on Shared-Ride Permits and the Airport is not accepting new applicants.  The renewal information applies to existing Shared-Ride operators.


Shared Ride Permits expire on October 31 of each year. Annual renewal notices are emailed in early and renewal documents are due by August 14. There is an annual registration fee for each vehicle.  Scheduling and inspections take place in September and October. Outstanding trip fees and/or administrative fines must be paid prior to renewal.

Clean Vehicle Requirement    

One hundred percent of Shared Ride fleet must use Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). In addition, vehicles that more than 5 years old (based on production date) and/or have more than 500,000 miles will not be renewed.


If you are planning to cease operating from SFO, please complete the PDF iconTermination Request form. Once a permit is terminated, an operator must wait nine 9 months before reapplying.


Bonds & Deposits

The bonds are based on the equivalent of six months of trips and may be increased accordingly. Bonds may be paid by money order, cashier's check, Irrevocable Letter of Credit, and Faithful Performance Bond. Bonds and deposits are refundable after the termination of a permit. Any money owed to the Airport will be deducted from the bond.
