LAX and Uber and Lyft

LAX announced today that it is changing its system for ride-hail pickups and taxis. Drop-offs will still be allowed curbside at the terminals, but pickup locations will be moved to a new staging area called LAX-it, that will have restrooms, benches, WiFi, cell phone charging stations -- even food trucks. Officials say the new pickup area can be reached with a short walk or ride on a new shuttle service.
