UBER ride from Zurich Airport

I will arrive at Zurich airport with my husband and 2 children and would think to have a car ride rather than train to get to downtown. Does Uber cars operate from Zurich airport to downtown?

yes they do, but they will need to pick you up in the departure zone and not in the arrival. nevertheless, I would recommend trains to go into the city centre.

edit: you can also check it with entering zurich flughafen as pickup-point in your app, it will also tell you there that you will need to go to the departure zone.

Thanks all for your kind response.

I have checked the estimate cost for Uber, and it is about the same for 4 of us taking the train. But for convenience sake, I will try to get the Uber. Hopefully the apps wont dissapoint me.

I am very much a train person, but if you need to be collected at the airport, why use Uber? Here is a proper taxi service with competitive rates and hugely positive ratings. You won't have to rely on "HOPE" as you have to with Uber.

I use UBER all the time from Zurich airport. It is less than half the cost of the regular taxis. You just need to go up in the escalator or lift to the arrivals floor and walk along to the drop of point for passengers. Since you can use a trolly this really isn't too difficult. If I was just going to the Main Station in Zurich I would take a train, but if you need to take a taxi then I would always choose Uber.

Uber works worldwide - that is one of the advantages of the system, you don't have to install a separate app for every country you visit. You can try it at home: try to order a taxi from Zurich Airport, changing manually the place of departure (by default, normally departure is your position, located by the GPS of your phone) - should work. I tried it here in Zurich right now: NY La Guardia Airport to NY Rockefeller Plaza, gives me different categories to order, indication price, showing available cars near the Airport and the route to the destination.

Just make sure to stop the process before actually ordering the driver.
