Ride services such as Uber or Lyft are available through an app or digital platform to connect passengers with drivers of vehicles for hire.

App-based rideshare services are located on the Arrivals/Baggage Claim level (lower level, Zone 4). The apps will provide you with directions to the pickup points at Charlotte Airport. Door D is designated as the CLT pickup location. Look for rideshare pickup signs at Charlotte Douglas International Airport. Meet your driver. Proceed to the specified CLT pickup location as indicated by the app.

Note that this location may not always be the closest exit. The apps will display your driver’s name, license plate number, and car color. Verify these details before getting into the car. If you have trouble locating your driver, you can contact them through the app.
