FAQs

1. How do I request a ride?

To request a ride, please download the Lucky to Go app on the App store or Google play. Directions are then available in the app. 

2. Where are the airport pick up areas?

There is one pick up area at YLW at the north end of the terminal. Passengers can wait for their ride outside of the Arrivals area along the front curb.

3. Can I pre-book my ride?

Please reach out to Lucky to Go to understand their pre-booking policy. 

4. On my return to the airport, where are the drop off areas?

Similar to public and taxi drop off, there is no designated drop off area at YLW. Drivers must find space within the permitted unloading areas on the front curb.

5. Why do I need to pay a $2 fee for trips over 3 kilometres?

A per-trip fee is common place among airports in Canada that allow ride-hailing services. This fee covers the ride-hailing company's costs of doing business at the airport. YLW will use the revenue from this fee toward enhanced curbside management and other costs associated with providing additional trasportation options.
