      • After you have picked up your luggage at OR Tambo, you can use your Uber app to order a ride to Sandton. After you have ordered your ride (or during or before), you need to go up one level from the baggage collection area. If you take the escalator outside and to the right of the exit from the baggage area, you will walk straight ahead and then when you reach the large circular open area (where you can look below to the ground floor) keep to your left and follow the signs to Parkade 2 of the parking structure. As you enter the building leading to the parking structure, the parking structure will be on your left. The Uber designated pickup area is zone 2E of Parkade 2. This is where your ride will wait to meet you. Fare to or from Sandton to the airport costs roughly ZAR 325. Drop-off will take place at the departing flight's level of the airport.
