FAQs

Do I have to go upstairs to Departures to get picked up?
Yes. Airport rules require drivers to pick up passengers on the Departures (upper) Level.
How will I know exactly where to meet my driver?
Make sure you put the pin in the spot where you’d like to be picked up before you make your request. In some cases, the app will move the pin automatically to the correct pickup area.
When should I make my request?
You should wait until you are ready to go to make your request (bags in hand). Drivers are not allowed to wait or circle the terminal if you’re delayed.
Is it okay to use Lyft if I have a lot of luggage?
Absolutely! All Lyft cars have at least four seats and a trunk for you to use. If you have a lot of bags and need to use more space in the car, it’s best not to use Lyft Line, which may pair you with other riders.
Is there an extra fee for airport rides?
Yes, there is an additional fee charged for airport rides that may not be included in your initial fare estimate. You will see it on your ride receipt.
