Lyft’s Fast Match at SAN Airport Eases Curb Congestion and Wait Times

San Diego CA— Lyft has made getting to and from airports easier and more convenient for millions of people across the country. Today, Lyft is announcing that its new, more efficient pickup experience will be available to all travelers requesting a Lyft to or from San Diego International Airport (SAN), Terminal 2.

This new feature adds to the suite of offerings Lyft provides in partnership with airports and cities to alleviate congestion, enhance curbside safety, and help riders more easily reach the people and places that matter to them most.

How it works:

  1. Enter your destination, and request a standard Lyft ride.
  2. If available, you’ll see a new screen pop up in your app. Tap “Get code” to get your unique four-digit code.
  3. Follow the directions to the outer traffic island at Terminal 2, and join the Lyft Fast Match line. (A Lyft ambassador will be there to assist you.)
  4. When you get to the front of the line, show your code to the driver. Once you’re matched, hop in and be on your way.

Lyft is excited to continue to serve as a solution oriented partner with cities and airports and is grateful for the support and leadership at SAN for its part in getting this pilot off the ground.

“Each year, the San Diego International Airport continues to break its traffic record with tens of millions of travelers arriving and departing from their terminals,” said Lyft Southern California General Manager Hao Meng. “Fast Match makes airport pick-ups easier by lowering wait times and reducing congestion, while still allowing users to enjoy the ease and convenience provided by Lyft. We look forward to continued collaboration with Airport leadership so that together we can provide a seamless and enjoyable experience for all travelers.”

“As the first airport to test-drive this concept, our team was pleased to work collaboratively with Lyft leaders to refine this unique service for San Diego travelers,” said San Diego International Airport President/CEO Kim Becker. “Like our partner Lyft, our goal is to offer customers greater convenience and choice – and the result is a new curbside service that’s been tested and ready to roll.”

SAN was the first airport to pilot the feature and Lyft is excited now to make it available to all Lyft users traveling out of the airport. For more information, check out the blog here and please feel free to reach out with further questions.
