Sending a Concierge ride from LAX and SFO airports

LAX and SFO international airports recently made significant changes to the pickup locations for rideshare.

On October 29, 2019, the pickup location for Standard, Shared, XL, and Lux Lyft rides will be located at the brand new LAX-it lot. Airport riders will be able to walk to this rideshare lot easily from Terminals 1, 2, 7, and 8, or they can take a dedicated LAX-it shuttle that will be running frequently at all terminals. 

Lux Black and Lux Black XL rides are still available for curbside pickups at the Arrivals area. This is already available at SFO and will be coming to LAX on October 29th. 

How do the LAX and SFO pickup location changes impact Concierge rides?

If you are requesting a Standard, XL, and/or Lux Lyft ride using Concierge with LAX or SFO as the pickup location, it’s important to keep in mind that your riders will now need extra time to get to the LAX-it lot or SFO rideshare pickup zones to meet their driver. Due to this, we highly recommend sending your rider a flexible ride so that they can call their ride when they reach the rideshare pick-up zone.

How do I choose the new LAX-it lot as the pickup location in Concierge?

You will be able to select the LAX-it lot from the Concierge ride request form when LAX is entered as the pickup location and the ride type you’d like to request is a Standard, XL, and/or Lux Lyft ride. 

  1. Log in to Concierge
  2. Click Request
  3. Enter your rider’s first name, last name, and mobile phone number
  4. Enter LAX in the Pickup address field and select LAX airport (LAX) World Way, Los Angeles from the drop-down menu that appears
  5. Two Pickup location fields will become available — the first is to identify which Terminal of LAX the rider should be picked up in or the LAX-it, and the second is to identify the approved pickup area within that terminal or the specific zone of the LAX-it lot
  6. Click on the first Pickup location field and select LAX-it Pickup Lot
  7. Click on the second Pickup location field

    • You can still select Now to request an on-demand ride, or Schedule to pre-schedule a ride for your rider. Please allow at least 20 extra minutes for your rider to reach the LAX-it lot

I want my rider to be picked up curbside at LAX. What should I do?

If you would like your rider to be picked up curbside at LAX, you may only select Lux Black or Lux Black XL as the ride type. The ride request process in Concierge remains the same — you’ll need to indicate which terminal your rider should be picked up at and what designated pickup area at curbside they’ll be located at.

Repeat steps 1-3 from above and do the following: 

  1. Enter LAX in the Pickup address field and select LAX airport (LAX) World Way, Los Angeles from the drop-down menu that appears
  2. Two Pickup location fields will become available — the first is to identify which Terminal of LAX the rider should be picked up in, and the second is to identify the approved pickup area within that terminal
  3. Click on the first Pickup location field and select the terminal at LAX that your rider will be picked up at
  4. Click on the second Pickup location field and select either Arrivals Curb 1E — limited to Lux Black, Lux Black XL or Arrivals Curb 1G — limited to Lux Black, Lux Black XL. This field is highlighted in yellow and you will see a Limited ride types message to alert you that curbside pickup only available for Lux Black and Lux Black XL
