Starting today, January 21, 2016 at 8:00am, uberX is fully available to pick you up at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Though in the past, you have always had access to uberX drop-offs at LAX, an Uber LAX pickup was not permitted. Many passengers/riders had to think of creative ways in order to get uberX services when they wanted an Uber LAX pickup, but now it is possible thanks to new regulations from Los Angeles City Council. Now, when your flight arrives, you can count on the same reliable and affordable ride to your final destination. In order to catch an Uber LAX pickup from uberX, follow these simple steps:
- Select your vehicle type, terminal, and airline to request a ride.
- Due to LAX regulations, your driver may have to pick you up at the lower arrivals or upper departures level. Your driver will call you to confirm your pickup location.
- If your driver tells you to be picked up at the upper departures level, meet your driver curbside near the “Ride Service” signage.
Please keep in mind that though you can get an uberX ride now from Los Angeles International Airport, you still are not able to take uberPOOL from LAX. Also, note that there will be an additional fee for this service. All pickups (and some drop-offs) are subject to an airport surcharge. The following airport surcharges will go into effect on January 21, 2016 at 8:00am:
uberPOOL, uberX, uberXL, uberESPAÑOL, uberASSIST, UberSELECT: $4 pickup surcharge, and $4 drop-off surcharge.
UberBLACK, UberSUV, UberLUX, UberWAV: $5 pickup surcharge, and no drop-off surcharge.
Uber Los Angeles is excited to be able to offer passengers this service, and to be able to allow you to get rides when you land at LAX is fantastic news!
