Hi all, seeing if anybody has any advice for airport pick-ups. I know we can wait in the cell phone free lot as long as we like to wait for a fare. Is there any place closer we can park? I've waited a couple times at the terminal outside departures, but the airport police comes by about every 10 minutes and makes me drive around. Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks and keep on Ubering!

I've posted about this before, but have never found Dayton airport to be a profitable place to wait even though I've done 3 $80+ fares starting from there.
For the most part it is waiting around, when you could be earning elsewhere.

If you are going to wait up there, then at least check the Dayton Airport website to be sure there are incoming planes. More than 2 or 3 that hour you are waiting is necessary unless you are just hoping to get lucky or can do other paid work or study in your car.

There is a place closer to the terminal than the cellphone lot where you can wait without being bothered by the police, but I can't give away all of my secrets and will leave it as an exercise for the true explorers to figure out. My only hint is that it has nothing to do with normal passenger pickup/drop off.

Thanks YellowAntennaBall. I'm trying to find that perfect airport spot. I really wish Dayton Uber was a bit more organized so we don't step on eachother while trying to get rides. Maybe just hoping.

I disagree on the queing. I live about 11 min from the airport and get pings. Why waste time sitting in line like the 12-15 cabbies do. Never know what you will miss for that $18 fare downtown.
