Rideshare Brisbane Airport, Australia

Q-Free has delivered an Electronic Access Fee Collection System (EAFCS) to Brisbane airports for access control and charging, and to control congestion of commercial vehicles at the airport precinct.

In 2019, Q-Free installed the new “holding area” subsystem to the System (EAFCS) which is designed for Rideshare drivers, to provide an area where they are required to park before progressing to the passenger pick-up area. DSRC tags and readers, together with boom gates and variable message signs enable the system to enforce the correct queueing behavior. The main objective of the holding area is to reduce congestion on roads around the airport terminals, currently caused by Rideshare drivers circling or parking illegally in the airport precinct. Brisbane Airport was one of the first airports in Australia to enable ride share pick up services, including Uber.
