Pick-Up & Drop-Off At Universal Studios Hollywood

There are currently two different pick-up and drop-off locations at Universal Studios Hollywood. One is at the Universal Studios Hollywood theme park entrance. The other is at the back of the CityWalk entertainment district.

Rideshare drivers and friends/family can use any drop-off location at Universal Studios Hollywood for free. No special ticket or permission is required. Just follow the signs within Universal City.

You can select either location at Universal Studios Hollywood on the Uber or Lyft app. However, the location you choose is essential as it’s a 20-minute walk between the two.

Universal Studios Hollywood Pick-Up & Drop-Off Locations

There are two different pick-up and drop-off locations at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Location #1 – Universal Studios Hollywood Park Entrance

If you are going straight to Universal Studios Hollywood, the best place to be dropped off is the Frankenstein Parking Garage. This parking garage is a 5-minute walk from the theme park entrance.

As a driver, follow Uber/Lyft’s directions to find the Frankenstein Parking Garage drop-off/pick-up location.

Once you enter the parking garage, wrap around the island in the middle. There are no ticket barriers at the Frankenstein Parking Garage. But attendants are on hand to check the traffic flow.

As a guest, exit the vehicle inside the parking garage and follow the signs to the theme park entrance. You’ll need to go up one floor to the walkway using the stairs, escalator or elevator. From the walkway, follow the pathway to the theme park entrance.

As a guest leaving the theme park, you’ll want to exit via the main gates. Then, follow the pathway around and to the right. As you head across the walkway, you should see the signs for the Frankenstein Parking Garage.

Sign outside the Universal Studios Hollywood theme park for the Frankenstein Garage where Rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft can pick up and drop off passengers

The pick-up location inside the Frankenstein Parking Garage is on the ground floor. As such, you’ll need to go down the stairs, escalator or elevator to get to the pick-up point.

Location #2 – Universal Hollywood CityWalk

If you want to dine or shop at Universal’s CityWalk, the best pick-up/drop-off location is at the ET Parking Garage.

The ET Parking Garage is at the far end of CityWalk, behind Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Buca di Beppo Italian Restaurant. Subsequently, it’s a 20-minute walk from the Universal Studios Hollywood theme park entrance.

This pick-up/drop-off location is less popular than the Frankenstein Parking Garage. It’s also not as well signposted inside CityWalk.

Therefore, if an Uber or Lyft is picking you up, I recommend using the rideshare app’s navigation to ensure you’re in the right place to meet your driver.
