Getting picked up or dropped off at Universal Studios, Hollywood? There are two picks up and drop off locations at Universal Studios Hollywood designed for Ubers, Lyfts, alongside other carpooling options.
Both of these pick up and drop off locations are located within great proximity to the park making them ideal for those looking to visit the parks or the adjoining City Walk.
Universal Studios Hollywood Park Entrance
If you’re planning on heading straight into the park, or just leaving the park and looking to get picked up then you’ll want to be dropped off or picked up at the Universal Studios Hollywood park entrance.
This location is round by the entrance fountain on the right-hand side (as you exit the park)
This pick up / drop off location can be pre-selected on the rideshare application of your choice.
The second pick up and drop-off point at Universal Studios Hollywood is by the ET parking garage which is at the far end of CityWalk (you’ll need to walk through CityWalk to get to / from the park entrance to here)
However, this pick up / drop off location at Universal Studios Hollywood is ideal if you’re looking to grab a bite to eat before/after the park.
Again, this pick up and drop off location can be selected on the rideshare application of your choice. An is signposted in City Walk to help you get to the exact pickup location easily.
On a side note if you’re looking for a taxi but don’t have a smartphone available to order an Uber or a Lyft there is a taxi stop for general yellow taxi’s at both pick up and drop off locations.
I have however found this service to be much more than the Uber or Lyft alternatives so where possible I’d advise you to use those instead.
The Benefits Of Pick Up & Drop Off At Universal Studios Hollywood
Can’t decide between driving to Universal Studios Hollywood yourself or getting dropped off by an Uber or a Lyft?
During our multiple visits to Universal Studios Hollywood, we’ve never actually driven to the park. While I understand that being from the UK this would require us to hire a car, I’ve actually found that many people who drive to Los Angeles may also benefit from being dropped off and picked up by a service such as Uber or Lyft instead.
The first reason being that it can often be cheaper to pay for an Uber or a Lyft to and from the hotel than it can be to pack your car at the park. After all, parking at Universal Studios Hollywood isn’t cheap!
The second reason you may opt to get an Uber or Lyft over driving to the parks is that you’ll actually arrive at the park gates quicker as you won’t have to waste time driving to the on-site car park, parking up and then walking to the park entrance.
Depending on where you end up parking at Universal Studios, this could easily shave 30 minutes off your transport time.
The final reason you may opt to get an Uber or Lyft over driving to the park is stress. Driving in Los Angeles is STRESSFUL (to say the least). The traffic is often chaotic at peak times. That level of stress is not something you want to start your epic day at one of the most awesome parks in the US with, so let someone else handle it for you instead.
