Pickups at the airport

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 the airport, you need to accept the trip before entering airport property.

Here’s how it works:

  • Pickups must only occur curbside at the passenger pickup and dropoff area
  • Always display the Uber trade dress on both your front and back windshield. Airport officials and law enforcement may ask to see proof of insurance, license and registration, and waybill
  • Confirm with your rider that they are ready for pickup before driving toward the airport
  • When you arrive at the waiting area, confirm your rider's name before starting the trip


No TNC vehicle shall stage prior to receiving a trip request on airport property. TNC vehicles shall only enter airport property to pick up or drop off a passenger.

Rides to the airport

How dropoff requests work

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

Uber users at San Luis Obispo who request rides will be instructed to meet you at the designated rideshare pickup area labeled “Passenger Pickup and Dropoff Only,” located west of the terminal and across from Parking Lot 4.

To access this area, please stay in the left lane when entering the airport arrivals area.
