Pickups at SMX
How pickup requests work
Santa Maria Airport (SMX) is now approved for Uber drop-offs and pickups. Each airport has it’s own unique rules and regulations, so make sure to read these before heading over to Santa Maria Airport.
- Pickup and drop-off in the designated areas at the airport. You don’t have to wait in a holding lot, just make sure your rider is ready to go–idling by the curb is prohibited.
- Display your trade dress on both the front and rear windshields–you don’t need a permit for this airport, but you will need a prearranged waybill for every trip–it's in your app.
- Have your proof of insurance, driver license, and registration handy. Airport officials may ask to see these documents and your prearranged waybill.
Riders will be charged a $2.50 airport surcharge. This will be included automatically in their fare and does not affect your earnings. And just as a reminder, if you’re not on a trip please don’t idle by the curb.
**We're currently working with airports around Southern California for Transportation Network Company (TNC) permits. We'll be sure to keep partners updated as we make progress.
