Pickups at ACY


It is easy to receive trip requests from riders leaving ACY airport. However, these trips work a little differently than other requests.

Waiting for requests

To receive pickup requests at Atlantic City International Airport, enter the Cell Phone Lot to wait for a trip. Once in the staging lot, drivers receive ride requests via a virtual first-in, first-out (FIFO) queue. See map below.

Some things to know about FIFO queues:

  • Your location within the waiting lot does not affect your position in the virtual queue
  • When you’re in the designated waiting areas, you'll be able to see your position in the queue and how many partners are ahead of you in your Uber Driver app
  • You can lose your place in line if: you go offline on your Uber driver app, you drive outside the FIFO zone, you do not accept multiple incoming trip requests in a row, you cancel multiple rides (if the rider cancels, you will remain at the top of the queue)
  • You may wait in the Cell Phone Lot for up to 4 hours
  • Parking or idling at terminals or elsewhere on airport property is strictly forbidden and does not enter you into the trip queue. Doing this may result in a citation. Uber does not pay for citations issued to drivers for illegally parking at airports

Picking up your rider

When you receive a notification you have a pickup request, follow the directions in your Uber Driver app.

  • As you approach the pickup area, the app will indicate your rider information and location where he or she is waiting
  • Terminal areas can be crowded at times. Once you arrive at the pickup location, if you can't find your rider, message or call them through your Uber Driver app to let them know where you are

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.

4) Driver cancellations

Trip cancellations can take away from the great Uber experience that both riders and driver-partners expect. Please remember that driver-partners who improperly use the app and intentionally disrupt the service, including excessively canceling rides or asking riders to cancel rides, may lose the ability to receive trip requests to and from the airport through the Uber Driver app.

5) Ground transportation and airport security staff

Airport rules are as important as traffic rules. Airports expect Driver-partners to follow the instructions of the airport staff. Drivers should only wait in the Cell Phone Lot while at the airport.
