The forwardly-thinking heads at San Francisco International Airport have given the okay to RelayRides, a peer-to-peer car-sharing company, to legally operate at the airport.

This is a welcomed change for the San Francisco-based car- and ride-sharing company that had been since this August offering departing passengers car washes and free airport parking and then renting those clean parked cars at low rates to arriving passengers. The new deal exempts RelayRides from paying the fees that traditional rental-car companies pay because its business is part of the shared-service economy. However, the company that offers car sharing services in 1,900 American cities will still pay fees as a rental-car concession.
