How PIN pickups work
Rather than being matched with a specific rider, you’ll be instructed in-app to navigate to the Uber PIN pickup area. Once there:
Continue pulling forward in the queue until parking staff directs a rider to your vehicle.
Before entering your vehicle, the rider will provide you with a unique 6-digit PIN code; tap Enter rider PIN on the bottom of your Driver app and input the code.
Once the PIN is confirmed, the rider may enter your vehicle and you can start your trip.
Uber is a reliable option for travelers heading to the airport.
When dropping off riders at LaGuardia International Airport, simply follow the in-app instructions and drop your rider off at their desired terminal on the departures level.
Note that waiting in the terminal area, parking illegally, and idling on the shoulder may result in a citation.
1) Getting your car ready
Air travelers can have lots of luggage with them, so you may need 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 ensure that you’ve picked up the right person out of the crowd.
