Which Airports Allow Uber and Lyft Pickups?

Share Button

It’s the question everyone has been asking– Can I get picked up by an Uber or Lyft driver at the airport? We did some research to find out which of the major airports allow rideshare pickups, and which currently do not!

Keep in mind for those airports that do allow rideshare services to pickup passengers, there are restrictions! In order for Uber and Lyft to get permission to operate at certain airports, an “airport charge” may be added to your trip. This charge can range from $2 to $5 extra, and is dependent on the specific airport.

Some airports currently allow Uber to operate, but only through services such as UberBLACK and UberSUV, which are typically more expensive than the standard UberX ride. We have also heard of people not being able to request an UberX if their pin is inside the parameters of the airport, but if you move the pin to the edge, the app will allow you to request an UberX ride. You will simply then have to contact your Uber driver to give them your actual location.

The chart below shows the information we found for which airports currently allow Uber and Lyft pickups and drop offs. The highlighted portions indicate that Uber and Lyft currently do not operate at those airports, but that may change in the near future with drafts to legalize airport pickups.

What The Uber?! Get Your Drink On with UberWINE

We all know that Uber loves creating new services from UberX to UberXL, UberGO, UberSUX, UberLUX, UberBlack, etc. The list goes on and on and it appears as though there is no end in sight when it comes to new Uber Services. Uber has even expanded into fun services such as UberEats, where you can get your meals delivered to your door or UberRush where you can get almost any item delivered at top speed. You may have even heard about UberPuppies where you can request a car full of puppies to play with! Recently it came to our team’s attention that Uber has developed another interesting (and tasty!) service specifically for Santa Barbara called UberWINE and yes it is as awesome as it sounds.

With UberWINE, a rider in Santa Barbara now has the option to request a personal driver to drive him/her and up to 5 of their friends on a tour of Santa Barbara’s wine country for a day. Now tourists and locals in or near the Santa Barbara area can enjoy a private tour of the many vineyards in that region without worrying about transportation.

We love this new Uber idea even if it is a marketing ploy created by Uber’s genius team of marketers. We all have to admit that Uber wins in the creativity department when coming up with their new ride service concepts!

Happy What The Uber Friday!
