Introducing Fast Match: Making Pickups Easier at MSY

Leaving the airport should be the easiest part of traveling. Unfortunately, a lot of the time, it's not. With Fast Match, our new pickup feature, you can expect a smoother curbside experience.

How It Works

Instead of searching for your driver at often-hectic pickup areas, we’ll direct you to a clearly marked Lyft pickup area – at the middle lane of the new terminal. You’ll join a designated line with other Lyft passengers and show a unique four-digit code to the next available driver. 

We understand that Fast Match is a different way to request airport rides, so Lyft ambassadors will be at the pickup areas to assist you.

We look forward to bringing this experience to additional airports in the future. Here’s to making travel less stressful. 

How to Request Your Fast Match Pickup at MSY:

  1. Enter your destination, and request a standard* Lyft ride. 

  2. If available, you’ll see a new screen pop up in your app. Tap Get code to get your unique four-digit code. 

  3. Follow the directions to and join the Lyft Fast Match line. (A friendly Lyft ambassador will be there to assist you.) 

  4. When you get to the front of the line, show your code to the driver. Once you’re matched, hop in, and be on your way.
