If you are planning to take an Uber, Lyft or other ride-share service from Reagan National Airport, you’ll need to head to a new spot to be picked up.

Airport officials have moved the pick up zone to the ticketing level (upstairs) at Terminals B and C. The shift is designed to accommodate construction of the new security screening area at the airport – part of the larger $1-billion Project Journey initiative that will also add a new commuter terminal at the airport. Travelers flying in on Alaska, American, Delta, JetBlue, United and Virgin America who use gates 10 – 45 at the airport will be the most affected.

Uber and Lyft service at Terminal A will not be affected.

This will be just the first of many traffic shifts expected as part of the multi-year building project.  You can get construction updates by signing up here.
