The cell phone lot is an ideal place to wait for arriving passengers. After your arriving passengers have collected their baggage, and exited the Terminal, have them call you with the Door number and level (departure or arrivals) where they are waiting. It is important that the arriving passengers are outside at the curb and ready for pickup before you approach the Terminal. There is no waiting at the curb. Parking at the curb for any longer than a quick pick-up may result in a parking ticket and/or towing.

Where is It

The Cell Phone Lot is located on Autopilot Drive. From the Dulles Access Highway or Dulles Toll Road heading towards the Airport, stay in the right lane, past the first exit, and take the SERVICES exit (The Marriott lake will be on your right). Follow the ramp and bear right onto Aviation Drive. The Dulles Marriott Hotel will be on your right. Stay in the right lane until you reach the stoplight at the intersection of Aviation Drive and Autopilot Drive. Turn right onto Autopilot Drive and continue straight.  The Cell Phone Lot entrance will be on your right.
