Since Oct. 29th 2019, pick up location have changed for transportation networking companies (TNCs) and taxicabs while luxury ground transportation operators and TCP-licensed commercial for-hire vehicles can continue to pick-up arriving passengers on the lower-level CTA loop.
The new pickup only location is for passengers of ride apps such as Lyft, Uber and Opoli and taxi companies. LAX-it is located just east of Terminal 1, at the corner of World Way and Sky Way and it’s only 3 minutes walk from Terminal 1 and 8 minutes walk from Terminal 2, 7, and 8; While the drop off location still remains at the terminal curbs on the Upper/Departures Level. This is a dedicated pickup area with additional amenities, such as restrooms, benches, umbrellas for sunny/rainy days and even local food trucks. On site passenger assistance, lane management and shuttle loading areas will be provided by the staff. This is a temporary solution for the Central Terminal Area traffic until 2023 when the airport construction project, formally called Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP) will provide Automated People Mover train, proposing a real solution for traffic at LAX.
But according to Mark Stewart, the Legislative-Airport Committee Chairman and a board director of the Greater California Livery Association, compared to other services, the changes will be minimal for the regional chauffeured-luxury ground transportation industry but still require some patience and planning.
According to Stewart and airport advisories, the new guidelines to access LAX Airport for operators are as follows:
Limo/livery vehicles can still drop off passengers anywhere along the upper departure loop as usual.
Lower/arrivals level passenger drop-off/pickups will be relocated to the outer island curb. Inner lane access is prohibited. Zones will be identified by overhead signage and white painted curbs.
Limo/livery vehicles will need to share the arrival level outer curb with other TCP-licensed commercial vehicles, private vehicles from the general public, and rental motorcoach services such as FlyAway buses.
Chauffeurs will continue to be able to park their vehicles on lower levels of CTA parking decks and walk into the baggage claim areas to greet passengers and walk them back out to the vehicles. The only exceptions will be if certain parking decks are fully or partially closed at intermittent periods of construction, Stewart said.
Limo/livery services where a chauffeur waiting in the limo holding lot and arriving client text each other to arrange a curbside pick-up may encounter delays if pick-up space is limited during heavy traffic periods.
