    Finally got my first rematch in the new zone last Friday (haven't been driving much the past few weeks). Piece of cake for me! The signs were easy to follow (south terminal), and I called my rider upon arrival to confirm which zone he was waiting at. Not so easy for the pax though- he told me what a pain it was to walk there and figure things out the first time. Still, I was pleasantly surprised at how smoothly it went for me. Has it gotten better for you guys? I just didn't think it was nearly as bad as everyone made it seem on this forum.

    Mornings are definitely different from evenings. Still logjams in the pm as opposed to am.

    I had my first this weekend. The pax was so mad about having to walk that far. It's ridiculous. An officer there said it's just a way to make money by ticketing uber drivers. He said they are using plain clothes officers to catch drivers. They lost revenue with uber because they can't charge the high fees they charge taxi and car services.

    Passengers *****ing about the walk to the pickup area need to get a life, I used uber the other day when coming back to the ATL, it's not that far of a walk and the pickup was a piece of cake.

    I don't disagree with your observation about the walk. However, it's always been known that IPTAY = " I plow thirty acres a year !! " so you are more used to walking than most others

    Paxs are used to curbside service. In other cities there are designated pickup areas that are similar. Unfortunately with the construction of the canopy taking a year and a half the situation is going to get worst. Plus, they will probably make the temporary pickup procedure permanent. I like the idea of having a different place for picks than drops. It just need a little more logistic work on the airport's part.

    Some airport terminals can be pretty complex in terms of getting through TSA and checking in in general.

    The way PAX seem so bewildered and lost trying to find the rideshare pickup is kind of annoying.

    You made it from Phoenix to Atlanta but you can't figure out how to find your Uber?

    I've walked to the Atlanta pickup zones as a traveler and I would rate them as pretty bad.
    I can see someone with disabilities filing suit due to bad design (hint).

    It's not going to change for 2 years during construction. And when the construction is completed all you'll have is a canopy over the existing C.F. drop off (departures) and pick up (arrivals) ramp. No designated lane for ride share. Just a covered C.F.!!! Should build upper level departures and lower level arrivals. All that construction would then make some sense.
