Brisbane Airport Pickup Waiting Area

Driver Guide to Airport rides 

Accept rides to and from Brisbane Airport – Domestic & International terminals.


Ride-Share Waiting Zone

Wait in the designated rideshare holding zone to queue whilst waiting for trip requests. Drivers will need to enter the rideshare holding zone via Nancy Bird Way and turn right at the roundabout onto Bert Hinkler Drive and follow the signs to the carpark. You can then wait in the ‘Ride Share Vehicles’ parking spaces.

Domestic Airport

Exit the rideshare holding zone on Bert Hinkler Drive and turn left onto Moreton Drive towards the airport. Follow this until you get to the airport and follow the road until you see signs for rideshare pickup are in Macleay Way. You will pass through a boom gate so please ensure you have credit on your E-Tag. This is the rider pickup zone. Collect your rider and head back out of the airport



International Airport

Exit the rideshare holding zone on Bert Hinkler Driver and go straight through the roundabout under the overpass onto Nancy Bird Way. At the next roundabout, take your second exit which will take you straight past the International drop off point at the airport. Immediately after the terminal keep left and take your first left which will take you around to the bus and rideshare pickup zone.
