DiDi pick-up zones at Melbourne Avalon Airport
To request a driver, open the DiDI app, find your location and then tap "Request".
DiDi is also available at Melbourne Tullamarine Airport and to accommodate riders there are dedicated pick-up spots depending on which terminal you fly into.
Passengers flying into Terminals 1, 2 or 3 should follow the "Rideshare" signs which will lead you to the Rideshare Pick-up lane outside T2 between the bus stop and the short-term parking lot.
If you're leaving Terminal 4, you'll need to get to Level 2 inside the T4 Ground Transport Hub.
Here's how to request a driver once you're at the pick-up spot:
- Open the app
