When driving at PGD, Learn how to receive these trip requests and cash in on the action.
It's easy to receive trip requests from riders leaving the Punta Gorda airport. However, these trips work a little differently than other requests. To receive a trip request at PGD, you need to enter the dedicated first-in, first-out queueing (FIFO) zone, where you will be placed in line to receive a pickup request from the airport.
Here’s how it works:
Uber partners within the staging area zone in the map on the right are eligible to receive trip requests from PGD.
Once you arrive within the FIFO zone, you will automatically be placed into a virtual, first-in, first-out queue as long as you are online.
You can wait anywhere within the FIFO zoning boundaries, subject to airport rules. It doesn’t matter how close or far you are to the requester, as long as you stay within the FIFO boundaries.
Uber users at PGD airport who request rides will be instructed to meet you at the Short-Term Parking Lot, located across from the airport's main exit.
