We know you’re always on the move. That’s why we’re always looking for ways to help make your pickup experiences smoother and safer. Check out these quick tips to help make your pickup experience even easier for you and your driver.

Avoid bus lanes and bus stops

Throughout San Francisco, there are many lanes specifically designated for MUNI buses to ensure transit reliability and to improve traffic flow. Rideshare drivers who wait in bus lanes or bus stops can be subject to citations. You can help drivers cut down on potential citations and improve traffic flow by avoiding bus lanes and stops and requesting from a nearby area where drivers can safely pull up to the curb.

Watch out for bike lanes

In order to help keep bikers safe and to ease the flow of traffic, San Francisco has dedicated bike lanes where vehicles are not allowed to stop. To help ensure road safety, avoid requesting at curbsides with bike lanes and watch out for bikers while exiting the vehicle.

Pro tips for pickups

Ready for a smooth pickup? Request your next ride from an area where your driver can safely pull out of traffic. Where possible, look out for an open white curb passenger loading zone. Drivers can pull over to the curb safely, and you can get to where you want to go faster.
