Request a Ride from the Airport
Between August 7-22, you can request a free Lyft ride from the Tucson International Airport to your final destination (maximum $50 value). Depending on your arrival time, a member of the Global Wildcat Welcome Team may be at the airport to help with your arrival and arrange for your ride.
We recommend that you submit the Airport Ride Request e-form by August 1 to request a ride.
We cannot guarantee that ride requests submitted less than 72 hours before arrival can be accommodated.
If you are arriving outside these dates or need alternative ride options, we recommend checking other options listed on the Tucson International Airport website.
To make changes or cancel a ride request, please email email@example.com as soon as possible.
