Nashville (BNA) Airport Regulations

Lyft is available at the Nashville International Airport (BNA). As long as you follow the ground rules, you're in the clear for both pickups and drop-offs.


Review Airport Regulations Do’s & Don’ts

Drivers on the Lyft platform are responsible for knowing and following all airport regulations. Please see a full list of airport regulations at the airport's website. As a driver, you must follow the rules listed below in order to avoid receiving administrative citations from BNA Airport.

Waiting for Requests

  • Wait in the designated staging area. Only drivers within the designated staging area (pictured below) are added to the queue.
  • 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

  • Pick up passengers on the Ground Transportation Level (Level 1) and look for the Ridesharing signs. We have a designated loading area, where two vehicles are permitted to wait at once.
  • If your passenger needs longer than 20 minutes, use the designated staging area (pictured above). If there are no available parking spaces, you will need to leave airport property.
  • Do not pick up passengers on Level 2.
  • 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 on the Departures (Level 3) at the passenger’s carrier of choice.
  • Do not drop off passengers on Level 2.

Lyft Emblem

Keep your Lyft emblem displayed and visible at all times while giving Lyft rides.

If you are giving a non-Lyft ride at the airport, make sure to remove your emblem before entering airport property.

If you’ve been approved to drive, you should receive your Lyft emblem within a couple weeks. Didn't receive one? Let us know and we’ll look into it. In the mean time, you may print your own temporary emblem.

If You're Approached by an Airport Authority

Authorities at the airport may approach you and ask you for a waybill.

The waybill allows law enforcement officials to see information about your current or most recent ride.

To access your waybill, follow these steps:

  1. Go to your Dashboard*.
  2. Tap Waybill in the left side menu.

*Access your Dashboard either through the left panel menu in the Lyft app, or by going to lyft.com/drive in a web browser.
