The arrivals and departures volumes show you passengers landing and departing the airport, but keep in mind that not every arrivals flyer is going to be leaving your airport. Some are on transfer, and some are on layover. Of the people that have flown into your airport as their end destination, you have to factor in how many of these people will be looking for uber/lyft rides.
You can use this arrivals and departures number coupled with the amount of drivers currently in line to estimate just how long you would have to wait in line before getting a ride. We can't speak for the airports in your region, but we know that for our airport - 1000 arriving passengers and 50 drivers waiting in line means around a 30 minute wait in line.
Use the departures information to better time for trips to the airport. You can imagine flyers budgeting 1 hour for airport security and 1 hour for the drive up to the airport. This means that 2 hours before a large departures peak, you should expect to find more airport trips as flyers are looking for uber/lyft rides up there.
Take this information further and plan to be around areas where you know flyers are staying. This can be hotels, conventions, businesses with out of town consultants. Go even further by only looking for rides up to the airport when you know there is a large arrivals peak when you get up there. You minimize your wait in line, and hopefully score back to back airport trips.
