One thing I noticed before is that the app had the option to select the door you were needing to get picked up at (N4, S5, etc). Although, It’s usually quicker if you cross the first street and get picked up on the outer street near the shuttle buses if it comes up at all in the airport area.

As of November 2015 the airport does not allow Uber or Lyft or any ridesharing. They have even posted signs up in the baggage claim area saying that it is “unsafe”.
