Would like to connect with a few uber or lyft drivers in the Morristown / Greenville area. We occasionally have a need to go the either the Knoxville airport or the Tri Cities airport from Russellville and scheduling online is unpredictable. I would like to make a few relationships. How might I go about this?

Once you enter your request you can contact the drivers who respond directly and start a dialogue.

I don't think Greeneville has Uber or Lyft, but could be wrong.

Uber considers Greeneville to be part of the Tri-Cities market. Whether or not any drivers are based in Greeneville is a different story. A fare estimate from my office to my home - a 1.5 mile round trip - was quite high, so I assume local drivers are not readily available. Greeneville is not exactly the Uber demographic.

Lyft considers Greeneville to be part of the Johnson City market. Their fare estimate was much more reasonable, so it's possible there are more local Lyft drivers.

It would probably be cheaper just to drive yourself to the airport and pay to park than paying a ride share.

I can't speak for either but I can tell you that Lyft actually has a much larger coverage area in this market compared to Uber.
