Frisco, TX (WBAP/KLIF) – The City of Frisco will be the first test site for Uber’s much talked about flying taxis.
Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney says testing from Frisco Station will begin next year — it’s a new helipad located next to The Star, near the Dallas North Tollway; and, it was built specifically to be the first test site for Uber Elevate and beyond.
“It’s in their masterplan to be a permanent location when it opens to the public.”
The helipad is larger than most, because it is designed to handle more than a regular helicopter.
