- Many staff, especially the females are feeling quite unsafe with the current location of the Uber car park at Gold Coast Airport. Sometimes in the early morning hours and late at night we are walking alone past these Uber Drivers and into the back parking lot. In doing this we are walking past these men who are standing outside their cars staring at us which at times makes us feel uncomfortable and uneasy. The airport might think that it’s no different to where the Uber Drivers used to park however it is. We now walk directly past them rather than on the opposite side of the street and also their cars used to face the fence line towards the apron, not facing us. They might say it’s no different as the rental car company was there before, however we believe it is different as the rental car company didn’t operate so late at night and in the early hours of the morning. Some staff are also reporting several instances where they have almost being hit by the drivers at the pedestrian crossing as they are in a rush and not paying attention. Please move the Uber Drivers to the far northern end of the car park! They are in cars and this would add an extra 5 seconds to their trip to the terminal. If safety is a priority for the airport this would make us girls feel a lot safer or if it isn’t in the pipeline to be moved please do more to protect the staff by adding security guards during these hours.
