If you wish to travel conveniently and avoid scheduled airport transfers, ride-sharing apps are a great choice! Requesting a ride is simple and quick, and you choose the type of vehicle and service. Both Uber and Lyft serve Newark Liberty International Airport and take airport passengers to and from various locations in the area. This guide will help you get a Lyft to Newark Airport and find a Lyft pick-up spot at EWR. We will give you a glimpse into Lyft prices and provide tips on saving money and traveling stress-free!

Lyft at Newark Airport

Newark Airport allows Lyft drivers to pick up and drop off passengers at convenient locations on either Arrivals or Departures Level. Ride-sharing services used to be one of the most cost-effective airport transportation options, but that has changed since the pandemic started. Sharing a ride isn’t allowed at the moment, so the most affordable airport transfers aren’t available. However, you still have a wide range of choices. Request a Lyft at EWR to see available rides, but check out the pick-up locations and Lyft fares below before you set off.

Finding a Lyft pick-up spot at Newark Airport is quite simple. All ride-sharing drivers at EWR collect travelers on the Arrivals Level. When ordering a ride on the app, use the map to put the pin in the spot where you would like to be picked up. If it’s possible, the driver will wait for you there; if not, the app will automatically move the pin to the closest pick-up point. That’s where you should go and meet your driver.
