If you have flown in or out of New York’s La Guardia Airport (LGA) recently, words like hectic, total chaos or confusing might come to mind. The situation, due to construction at LGA, is simply a mess. In the long run, things should be much better for travelers who use the airport, but in the near term, the current situation is here to stay.

There is a bit of good news, however, for customers who use the ride share app Lyft at LGA: it’s getting a new designated pickup area at the airport.

Users who book a regular Lyft ride from LGA will now have the option to head over to Terminal B’s parking garage area to meet their ride instead of the usual hectic ride share app pickup locations.

Users must select a Standard Lyft ride. When they do this, they will be given the option to get a code rather than be assigned a driver. Once they have their code, they can head over to Terminal B. Lyft says that once you’re in area G of the parking garage a Lyft ambassador will help you locate your driver and get you on your way.
