DiDi pick-up zones at Melbourne Tullamarine Airport
DiDi is available at Melbourne Tullamarine Airport. To accommodate it there are dedicated pick-up spots to help you locate your driver. All airport pick-ups incur a rideshare access fee of $4.48, which is automatically added to your DiDi fare.
Meeting your driver depends on which terminal you've arrived in.
Passengers flying into Terminals 1, 2 or 3 should follow the "Rideshare" signs to the Rideshare Pick-up lane outside T2 between the bus stop and the short-term parking lot.
Passengers flying into Terminal 4 need to get to Level 2 inside the T4 Ground Transport Hub to be picked up.
Here's how to request a driver once you're at the pick-up spot:
- Open the app
- Pick the right terminal departure location
- Choose the best ride option to fit all passengers and your luggage
- Tap "Request"
