Where is the Uber/Lyft Pickup at the Airport in Las Vegas?

Taxi cabs and shuttles have dominated airport transportation in Las Vegas for decades, however, Uber and Lyft are now commonly leveraged as ride share’s popularity grows nationwide.

While the location to catch a shuttle or cab at Harry Reid Intl. is easy to find and enjoys clear labeling, the ride share pickup location is a bit murkier.

Given our own struggles finding the Uber and Lyft pickup location at Harry Reid on numerous occasions, we thought it may be helpful to construct step-by-step instructions to aid in finding them in both Terminal 1 and Terminal 3.

TIP: Don’t request your Uber or Lift pickup from your phone until you arrive at the designated ride share pickup location as they commonly are staged and arrive quickly.

Ride Share Pickup Location in Terminal 1 of Harry Reid Intl. Airport

  • If you didn’t check a bag, stay on level 2 and make your way towards the parking garages which are labeled.
  • You’ll know you’re on the right path if you pass over baggage claim below and see the “Hacienda” airplane hanging from the ceiling to the left.
  • Keep walking toward the parking ramp past the retail shops and restaurants that line the hallway. Slots will be in the middle isle tempting you, avoid the temptation and save your action for an actual casino.
  • Once you get to the parking ramp, take the pedestrian bridge to the Terminal 1 parking garage.
  • At this point, follow the signs to the designated Uber/Lyft pickup location.

If checking a bag, follow the signs to baggage claim to snag your bag. Once you do, take an elevator back up to level 2 and head towards the parking ramp following the steps above.

Ride Share Pickup Location in Terminal 3 of Harry Reid Intl. Airport

  • Once you de-board your plane, follow the signs for baggage claim.
  • Keep walking past baggage claim towards the doors to leave the terminal, but do not leave.
  • When you reach the doors, take a nearby escalator or elevator up one level to “Level 1”. Those escalator/elevator options can be found by doors 52, 54, or 56. This step is poorly labeled at the airport. I’ve found myself getting tripped up here a few times.
  • After taking an escalator or elevator up to level one, simply cross the pedestrian bridge to the Terminal 3 parking garage and you’re home free.
  • The pickup location is on the Valet Level.

Where Can Ride Share Services Drop Off at Harry Reid International?

Thank you for posting. Last time in Vegas, it took us forever to find Lyft. By the time we found pickup location, lyft driver left. It didn't take long for another one to arrive. Great idea don't call for pickup until you are at pickup location.
