Gone are the days of booking an UberX to a location beyond the jurisdiction of Tullamarine Airport. Now you can simply arrange pick-up from two approved “wait zones” inside the airport forecourt, as well as the T4 Transport Hub, currently the sole dominion of yellow and silver taxis.

Passengers arriving at terminals 1, 2 and 3 can find their drivers waiting in Lane 1 of the main terminal forecourt. Terminal 4 arrivals can be picked up from Level 2. Pick up locations for UberBlack users remain unchanged.

Drop off locations remain along Departures Drive and on level 1 of the T4 Transport Hub.

My Aunty takes limos home from the airport as she claims they’re only $20 more than a taxi. Will she finally be convinced to give up this extravagance? If Uber drivers start offering Champagne instead of water bottles they could be onto a winner.
