Melbourne Airport is set to open dedicated UberX pick-up zones at its domestic and international terminals – but drivers will pay to use them, and pass that cost onto passengers.
The airport will levy an 'airport access charge' of $4 per trip, beginning tomorrow when the waiting and pick-up zones are officially opened.
If you're coming out of Terminal T1, T2 or T3, the UberX pick-up zone is Lane 1 of the main terminal forecourt – but only on the right kerbside.
Travellers at Terminal 4 will find their UberX pick-up zone at the Level 2 "transport hub'.
UberBlack pick up areas remain unchanged in the dedicated permit zones.
