TheDropCurb zones marked The Drop are free, convenient areas for people to be picked up or dropped off by ride share drivers between 6 p.m. and 3 a.m.

The program establishes designated areas for pick-ups and drop-offs, which offer added convenience for people who use ride share services, such as Uber and Lyft. It is the first-of-its-kind program in the region.

Drivers are not permitted to park or stage in The Drop curb zones.

The Drop is a pilot program with 12 curb zones located throughout the City of West Hollywood in areas that experience a high volume of ride share use during evenings and nights. Additional locations will be added to the program as usage is assessed.

  • The Drop Frequently Asked Questions

    • Do these zones mean that ride share drivers can only pick up customers at these twelve current The Drop locations?

    • Why did the City of West Hollywood establish this program?

    • Where are The Drop curb zones located?

    • What are the days and hours that these designated zones operate?

    • What if I need a ride share pick-up from home at 2 p.m.? In other words, do I need to wait until 6 p.m. or walk to a drop zone to get picked up? For example, if I live in the Hancock Lofts, would I be required to walk somewhere else to get a pickup?

    • Will ride share cars be in queue in these zones?

    • Will other parking be barred from these pick-up zones? Have parking spaces been lost to create The Drop?

    • What can an Uber or Lyft driver do to accommodate a handicapped person who may not want to walk a distance to a designated zone for a ride or walk from a designated zone for a ride?

    • What is the City doing to let ride share drivers know that they should use The Drop zones? Is there any sort of penalty for a driver who doesn't use them?

    • Will ride share services also still operate as they normally do in areas outside of The Drop zones?
