Permitted Airports

Drivers on the Lyft platform are responsible for knowing and following all airport regulations in order to avoid receiving administrative citations from the airport. Lyft is available at the following airports in Nevada:


Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (LAS)
LAS Airport

 

Beginning in mid-September 2018, Lyft will be testing airport queues separated by ride type at LAS airport. With separated queues, drivers will now have more visibility into what position they are for each mode they are driving for.

Driver Manual:

Waiting for requests:

  • Wait in the designated staging area. Only drivers within the designated staging area (open in Google Maps) are added to the queue.
  • Follow all airport rules. Have your app open in driver mode, display your Lyft emblem, park correctly in the stall, follow all traffic control signs, remain with your vehicle unless taking a short restroom break, and do not litter.
  • The queue is first in-first out. The driver who has been waiting within the staging area in driver mode the longest gets the next request. Your physical location within the staging area does not affect your spot in the queue, but if you exit the staging area or log out of driver mode, you will lose your spot.
  • If the staging area is full, you must leave the airport. You may not wait for requests anywhere else on airport property or use any other parking lots while in driver mode.
  • Passenger cancellations don't affect your place in line. If your passenger cancels on you, head back to the staging area. As long as you're back within 5 minutes, you'll be placed at the front of the queue.
  • Driver cancellations and missed requests do affect your place in line. If you are the one to cancel a request, or if you miss a request, you're placed at the back of the queue.
  • You can view your place in line in the app. Learn how to view your position in the queue here.

Pickups:

  • Terminal 1: Pick up passengers on Level 2M of the parking garage (pictured above).
  • Terminal 3: Pick up passengers on the Valet Level of the parking garage (pictured above).
  • Please call and instruct your passengers to follow the Rideshare signs from the main terminal to the designated parking garage (level & section) where you will meet.
  • When using the designated T-1 and T-3 loading areas, please use the designated loading stalls — DO NOT load in the Thru Lane.
  • If the loading area is congested and/or you have been waiting too long, DOA staff will instruct you to exit and circle around to reenter the Loading area. You must follow any instructions and directions from all DOA staff working in the curb areas, loading areas, and staging area.
  • Do not pick up passengers from Arrivals at the main terminal entrance.
  • Do not wait on the terminal roadway if your passenger is delayed. Head to the staging lot and wait there. If the staging lot is full, you will need to leave airport property.
  • Pre-dispatch: While waiting for requests, you may receive an SMS and/or in-app note directing you to head toward the terminal. While en route, you should receive a ride request. If you do not, head back to the staging area. As long as you're back within 15 minutes, you'll be placed at the front of the queue. More information on pre-dispatch can be found here.
  • Short ride bump: If you receive a request for a short ride from the airport after waiting in the queue, you may qualify for a higher queue position after you drop off your passenger. You'll receive an SMS after dropping off to let you know you have the option to return to the staging area for a preferred spot in the queue. Please note, if you give a ride before returning to the staging area, you may still qualify for a preferred spot in line.

Drop-offs:

  • Drop off passengers at the Departure Curbs area at the passenger's carrier of choice. Leave the terminal immediately after dropping off.
  • As soon as you've dropped off your passenger, press 'Tap to drop off' in your app and exit airport property. Wait to rate your passenger until you've left the airport.
