Heads up: Starting September 16 at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and late October at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Lux Black drivers with a commercial (TCP) license and a separate airport TCP license or limousine permit will be able to pick up passengers at the terminal curbside. If you don’t have a TCP license, don’t worry, you’ll automatically be directed by the driver app to the ridesharing pickup location.
I’m an approved Lyft driver with a Lux Black/Lux Black XL vehicle, but don’t have a TCP license or airport license/permit. How do I get them?
First, you’ll need to visit the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) website to apply for a TCP license. Once you’ve received the CPUC license, you should then visit either the SFO Limousine website or the LAX TCP website. Please note, this process is wholly independent of Lyft, with its own application and fee requirements.
I have a TCP license and airport license/permit, how do I make sure it’s added to my Lyft driver profile?
If you’re an approved Lyft driver with a current TCP license and airport license/permit, head to the appropriate local website below to submit your information. A Lyft team member will then contact you to complete the process and confirm your TCP eligibility.
