The Austin airport has renovated the ground-floor level of the Rental Car Facility to create a designated pick-up area for Taxis and Ride App Cars. The move of car transportation services for taxis and ride app reduces 3,700 cars per day from roadway terminal entry. This also advances the re-design of a terminal and roadway buildout envisioned in the airport’s master plan.
Taxis and ride apps pick-ups are on the ground floor of the same building as the rental cars. Number and color system at ride app pick-up location was a collaborative innovation between Austin airport and the ride app companies. Upon arriving at the ground level of the Rental Car Facility, dedicated taxi lanes are to the immediate left. Three ride app pick-up lanes, color-coded in blue, red and yellow with corresponding numbers 1-4 match the customer’s selected pick up selection. Mobility vehicles are available to assist with the 600-foot walk to the Rental Car Facility and walkways have been established to cross the garage to the location.
