Pickups at IND

How pickup requests work

It's easy to receive trip requests from riders leaving the airport. However, these trips work a little differently than other requests. To receive a trip request at IND, you need to enter the dedicated staging lot, where you will be placed in line to receive a pickup request from the airport.

Here’s how it works:

  • Drive into the dedicated staging area located in the Limo Lot, which is across the street from Cell Phone Lot
  • You’ll be placed in queue for the next pickup—pickups work on a first-in, first-out basis
  • Once you accept a request, please follow the signs to Ground Transportation Center and meet your rider in Zone A.

How drop-off requests work

Uber is a smart option for travelers heading to their airport. At IND, simply drop-off riders at their requested terminal on the departures level. It's important to keep the Uber Drive App on until you exit airport property.

Uber staging lot at IND

Uber partners may wait for ride requests at the designated staging area in the Limo Lot only. You will not receive an airport request outside of this lot (and may be issued a citation).

Enter the Limo Lot, which is across the street from the Cell Phone Lot.

Keep in mind that:

  • The lot is "first in, first out"; upon entering the staging lot, you will be placed in queue for the next trip request
  • If you leave the staging lot or turn off your app, you will be placed at the back of the line
  • Staging at terminals or elsewhere on airport property is prohibited and may result in a citation
