Introducing Fast Match: Making PDX Pickups Easier For You

Between jet lag and lugging all that luggage through security, leaving the airport should be the simplest part. With our new pickup feature, Fast Match, expect a much smoother curbside experience.

We're excited to announce that Fast Match is coming to Portland International Airport (PDX) — and we look forward to bringing this experience to other airports in the future. Starting now, when you request a standard Lyft ride from PDX, expect less confusion for both you and your Lyft driver. Instead of searching for your driver at often-hectic pickup areas, we’ll direct you to a clearly-marked Lyft pickup area, located at Island 2. 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 available curbside to assist you.

How to Request Your Fast Match Pickup at PDX:

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

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

  3. Follow the directions to Island 2 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 merry way.

Here’s to making travel a whole-lot less stressful.

Only available at select airports and is subject to availability. User must select a standard Lyft ride for this feature.
