For driving at LGB, learn how to receive airport trip requests and get in on the action.
Per airport regulations, drivers must adhere to the terms below. Failure to do so may result in the receipt of a citation or even restriction of access to airport trips. Please note that Uber will not pay for any citations that drivers may incur.
It's easy to receive trip requests from riders leaving the airport. However, these trips work a little differently than other requests.
Waiting for requests
Uber’s technology uses a queuing system. This means that, in order to receive a trip request, you need to enter the designated waiting area. You will then be placed in a virtual queue.
Based on the operating agreement with the airport, the waiting area is located at the corner of N. Lakewood Blvd. and Donald Douglas Drive (see map below).
Some things to know about the queuing process
Picking up your rider
Once you accept a trip request, the pickup location at the airport is at the outer island curbside, along Donald Douglas Drive (see map below).
Uber is a reliable option for travelers heading to the airport.
Based on the operating agreement with the airport, riders can be dropped off at airport terminals, where curbside signs indicate you may safely drop off riders. If you’d like to receive a trip request afterward, you’ll need to keep the Driver app on to maintain your ability to queue.
According to LGB regulations, drivers may wait for trip requests at the designated Staging Lot located at the corner of N. Lakewood Blvd. and Donald Douglas Drive. Waiting for trip requests within airport property is not allowed and could result in a citation. You are responsible for any citations you may receive.
Once you're in the staging lot, there are a few things to keep in mind:
With UberPool, you can get 2 airport trips when you go to LGB. With pickups just around the corner, you’ll earn money and save a bit of time and gas.
Connecting with your riders
Riders have been asked to request only when they're ready to be picked up curbside. Remember, you could get a fine for loitering.
Moving you forward
The pickup experience was designed with your time in mind. You won’t ever have to circle the terminal for the second pickup—in fact, circling the terminal is prohibited by LGB.
1. Getting your car ready
Air travelers can have lots of luggage with them, so you may want to free up trunk space to fit it all in.
2. Helping with luggage
It may take some time for riders to load their luggage into your vehicle. The airport is a busy place, so an extra set of hands can speed things up and help get your riders to their destination faster.
3. Identifying your riders
Asking your riders for their names before starting a trip can help ensure that you’ve picked up the right person out of the crowd.
4. Checking the arrivals schedule
Checking the arrivals schedule at Long Beach Airport can help you maximize your earnings with information about when flights will be landing at the airport and when it will be busiest. See LGB arrivals schedule.
5. Making music optional
While tunes are nice to cruise to, riders may prefer silence after an early-morning or late-night flight. Asking them what they prefer can go a long way and help provide a great experience.
