Hi everyone. previously before we heard that Sydney airport would make changes to the public pickup area which they mentioned that they were going to create an Uber X Pickup Zone for all us Uber drivers. it's passed the date of 19th July and nothing has happened and haven't heard from Uber or anyone about the Uber X pickup zone. does anyone here know what the go is?

Nice to see a quality post from you!

I will keep doing what I am doing at the airport. If things change I am sure we will all find out.

Coming Soon: New passenger pick-up arrangements at T2/T3 Domestic

Sydney Airport will introduce new arrangements for motorists picking up passengers at the T2/T3 Domestic precinct to provide greater choice, more space and improved convenience.
A date for the new pick-up arrangements will be announced soon.


Free Express Pick-Up Zone
A new, expanded Express Pick-Up zone will be located in the P3 under cover, multi-storey car park.
Free parking will be available for 15 minutes.

Priority Pick-Up Zone
A new Priority Pick-Up zone will be available for private motorists, pre-booked taxis and ridesharing services such as UberX and GoCar.
Priority Pick-Up will be located opposite the T2 and T3 terminals for a fee of $4 for 15 minutes, with convenient payment via your existing eTag.

Kerbside Pick-Up Zone
Limousine drivers registered with Sydney Airport will continue to pick up passengers from the Kerbside Pick-Up zone located directly outside the T2 and T3 terminals.

Blu Emu Car Park Pick-Up
Under the forthcoming new arrangements, Blu Emu Car Park will offer one hour of free parking. Blu Emu is accessed via a free, direct shuttle bus service, dropping off and picking up outside the T2 and T3 terminals, with 13 bus stops conveniently located inside the Blu Emu Car Park.

Other Parking Options
Sydney Airport continues to offer a wide range of car parking options available at the airport for customers who wish to park and stay longer, including savings for customers who pre-book their parking online.

Taxis, buses and trains
There will be no change to arrangements to the taxi ranks directly outside the terminals or accessible pick-up spaces at T2/T3. There is also no change to express pick-up at T1.
There will be no change to arrangements for access to bus and train services across the airport.

Accessible Pick-Up
The existing accessible pick-up spaces on the Arrivals level outside T2 and T3 will remain unchanged.

Drop-offs at Terminals T2/T3
Under the new pick-up arrangements, there will be no change to drop-offs on the Departures level of terminals T2 and T3.

International Terminal (T1)
Sydney Airport provides 15 minutes free parking for arriving and departing passengers at the International T1 terminal. The designated pick-up area is within the International car park. If you are picking up arriving passengers at T1, proceed to the International Car Park and follow the yellow ‘Express Pick-up’ signs to the 15 minute free area. Drivers that stay beyond the free 15 minutes pay normal parking rates.

A map of the car park indicating the pick-up area is available here. T1 International Terminal Pick-Up Zone Map

Within the 15 minute pick up area, there are designated two-minute pick-up and drop-off bays. Drivers parking in these bays must remain with their vehicle. Drivers cannot park in these bays for more than two minutes.

Important note: It is not permitted to collect passengers from the Departures or Arrivals roadways at any time. Attempting to pick up passengers outside of the designated area may result in a Parking Infringement Notice being issued.

did the guy specify a date on when this is actually going to happen? because they said "19th July 2016" and nothing has happened, nor no body has said anything. did he mention anymore details on where the uber waiting area will be?

Just a second, what does it mean $4 for 15 minutes?
Your etag will be charged $4 as you enter. You get 15 minutes in the pickup area. If you stay longer, your etag gets charged more.
I don't know if Uber can add that toll on to the fare because the GPS reception is not particularly accurate in that area between T2/T3, under the overhead roadways and between buildings. No problem at the International where the pickup area is out in the open.

Has anyone actually used this? I don't recall even seeing it, but did a few domestic pickups recently, and wondered when someone was going to tell me they were waiting there instead of the usual pickup area.
Also, I notice the whole of P3 is now covered, but I guess you need to ask the pax to walk further (past the outdoor pickup zone), but might be less traffic/waiting to get through the area...
Not sure I like the airport, one trip through took at least 20 mins from car park to the pick up point.

There is no indication in this thread that either company has been contacted to get a status update. I am unclear why there is an expectation that this forum has the answer.
