    From Wednesday 16 August 2017, Uber drivers will be able to pick up travellers arriving into Melbourne Airport.

    Uber drivers can now pick up passengers from both the Domestic and International terminals. This is good news for riders and travellers landing in Melbourne. Previously, you had to drop your riders at the departure gates and had to drive back into the city without a passenger.

    To receive pick-up requests, you must accept the Melbourne Airport Agreed Method of Operation.

    Uber will then process your registration. Once approved, you’ll receive an in-app confirmation and/or SMS to confirm that your account has been activated. Now you can start receiving trip requests at the Domestic and International terminals.
