You’ve always had access to uberX dropoffs at MSY. Now, when your flight arrives, you can count on the same reliable and affordable rides to your next destination.


To take the hassle out of your travel, follow these steps for pickups from MSY:

  • Select your vehicle type and request a ride.
  • Due to MSY regulation, your driver must meet you in the Ground Transportation Center. To get there, follow the signage for the Ground Transportation Center and walk directly across all of the pickup lanes on the arrivals level (in the crosswalk of course!).
  • Once you arrive at the Ground Transportation Center, you will see signage for “App Based Ride Services” in the parking lot and rows of numbered parking spaces.
  • Your driver will text or call to tell you which numbered space they are parked in. Just walk to the correct space, verify this is the right driver and vehicle, and you’ll be on your way!
