i have a feeling you'd be hard pressed to even get a ping sitting in cell lot. always drivers staying as close to baggage area who will get pings firstI emailed Connecticut Airport Authority inquiring and got the following response:
The BDL Uber policy is to be determined at this time. BDL does have a cell phone lot on Light Lane for vehicular holding while waiting for arriving passengers to exit the terminal for curbside pick-up. This is your best mode of operation at this time. Thanks.

So yes, we can pick up there. Just wait in the cell phone lot to get pinged to avoid any issues with Security.
You get airport pings from home? If yes, what does that say about trying to sit by arrivals island. Do you think it's better to be as close to the airport as possible without actually being on the property ? Sometimes I wonder how the app works there. One time I was pumping gas off airport property and got a ping to pick someone up. The rider was standing at arrivals island right next to another uber driver I've seen before. He looked so confused to see me pick rider up when he was parked right next to her. It got me thinking maybe the app bypasses drivers who hang out thereAfter reading this,I too reached out to Brian, he has respectively suggested we use the lot. I told him about the alleged actions of the U.S Murphy Security employee. He informed me that Rowando Phio is in charge of the service and direct that concern to him.
I chose to do this because BDL MATTERS to me. I live here in town and can usually sit at home and get pings.
Do you mind if I ask what your rating is? It's long been suspected that there is more to the algorithm than geography.i sit in the cell phone lot all the time and get pings for the airport. I call the rider and we lay out the best way for me to pick them up and bam, easy peasy. I never sat at the lot for more than 10 minutes without getting a ping. Even when there are other cars sitting at arrivals on the rider ap, i will get a ping over them. so who knows... but i do know i don't want to piss BDL off to the point where they regulate us on the fast track to permits
