Airports Allowing Uber Pickups

United States

ANC - Ride share services allowed. Pickups: North Terminal - at the curb as you exit; South Terminal - upper level (Departures) at Doors 1, 3, 4 and 8. (Maps here)

ATL - UberX, UberBlack

BNA - UberX and UberBlack - dedicated area ground floor to the right

BOS - UberX, UberXL, UberSUV and UberBLACK available. Rideshare pickup areas are located at Terminal A and between Terminal C and E. $3.25 Airport fee will be added to the ride.

CLT - UberX and UberBLACK are allowed. Pick up at arrivals area, lower level. The app will confirm pick-up at Zone D; all pick-ups must be made at Zone D. UberBLACK = $30 flat rate airport-downtown.

COS - UberX allowed

DAL - UberX pickups allowed

DCA - As of 11/1 - MWAA has legalized rideshare services. $4 surcharge on top of normal rates. Pick-ups on outer curb, outside of baggage claim.

DEN - UberX, Uber XL, Uber Select pick up approved from either Level 4 or Level 6 (arrivals or departures). The rider app even prompts you to select East or West side and then a door number. All Uber Black pick ups are on Level 5 (Commercial Vehicles area), which is the level for taxis, hotel shuttles and limos

DFW - UberX pickups allowed, there is a $2 toll for International Parkway (which runs through the airport) that will be added to your fare.
Caveat: If you are traveling between two points that go via the airport, the Uber app and most GPS apps will route the driver around the airport to avoid the toll, although the distance + time to go around the airport may exceed $2 extra.

DSM - UberX, UberBlack. Dedicated "Rideshare" pickup area.

DTW - Most drivers (X or black) can meet you curbside. Tip: at McNamara terminal, easiest pickup point is the Westin hotel entrance on the departures level. Black cars that are also Metro Cars (the official airport limo service) will need to park at their designated livery area -- driver will greet you in person.

EWR - Technically illegal, but UberX, XL, Black, SUV are all available (NJ rates + $20 surcharge if traveling into NYC)

FLL - Uber Pickups Allowed

HNL - For Interisland and International arrivals, use the second median on the departures level, across from Lobby 2. For Mainland US arrivals, use the second median on the departures level, across from Lobby 8. A 7.527% surcharge will be added to all uberX, uberXL, and UberSELECT pickups from HNL.

HOU - Designated Uber pickup area

LGA - UberPool, X, XL, CarSeat, VIP, Black, SUV (regular rates). For pickups from terminal B (serving all airlines except Delta), passengers need to take a shuttle bus to a rideshare pickup lot).

MIA - UberPool, X, XL, Lux, and LuxSUV. $2 surcharge.

  • between T2/T3, upper level

$5 surcharge. All rideshare companies operate out of a staging area off-site, and will drive to the zone after you request. Most drivers will also call you to ensure that you are at the correct zone. Drivers will not be pinged to your location unless they are in the staging area. The O'Hare Hilton counts as part of the airport, and pickups are not allowed there.

PDX - $2 charge for drop/pickup, outside of baggage claim, far left hand island labeled "Transportation Network Companies"

Great idea, as a European user it's sometimes difficult to know the rules before you arrive. I've been using this article from the Los Angeles Times as a guide but would love to have it kept up to date.

I'm flying into LGA later this week and understand it and JFK are both Uber/Lyft approved because in NYC these services, even UberX and Lyft, are operated by licensed Livery drivers/cars. I just REALLY wish NYC would catch up and offer Select... I'll almost always pay 1.25x - 1.5x to ensure a better car, especially when on the company dime and/or going out for the evening.

I know SEA is listed as "NO" in the LA Times article, but I've definitely got Lyft from the main terminal as recently as a few months ago. I know UberX is geoblocked but UberTaxi is not and does support app payment (unlike in NYC where you have to pay the driver direct). What I REALLY don't understand is why UberSelect is NOT geoblocked at SEA, since it's supposed to just be X with nicer cars... I've not been in town since discovering this, but I'll likely take advantage in the not too distant future.

That said, can anyone comment on pros/cons of UberX or Lyft from LGA to Midtown compared to one of the cheaper pre-booked towncar services?

Added OAK and SFO. I've never taken a black car from SFO, so can anyone confirm if it is really a flat rate from SFO to San Francisco? I've heard $65 in UberBlack and $81 in an SUV.

Confirmed X and SELECT now available at SEA, looks like as-of mid August and through contract with a For-Hire service, not traditional Uber contract Joe Schmoe drivers. This explains why Towncars always seem to show up for Select and X almost always has no cars available.

Good job we have the Wiki. I got a note from Sacramento saying airport pickup is now allowed (not sure what types).

Does anyone know if pickup from Ho Chi Minh City airport in Vietnam is allowed?

I've seen Uber picking up at ONT - Ontario, California.

But, I don't think it is formally approved. They don't have a designed pick up spot a la SFO and SAN.

If you guys are that adamant about not using a taxi - take whatever hotel shuttle you want and hail the Uber from there. Been doing this for awhile now and never had any problems with the shuttle driver checking or even asking. I just get my bags off and have it hailed and waiting when I get to the hotel.
