Great news for anyone landing in LAX and who could use a ride to their destination. According to Los Angeles Times, L.A. officials recently voted to allow car services such as Uber and Lyft to pick up passengers at LAX.

This can really improve the airports traffic congestion as LAX will be the largest airport to allow Uber. Assuming that Uber and Lyft can comply with LAX’s rules and regulations, these services may be available to passengers as soon as September 2015.

As you can probably imagine, taxi and limousine drivers are not thrilled about this decision and have already been seen protesting against this recent decision. However, this change is important for travelers and we strongly recommend utilizing these services.

If you haven’t signed up for Uber, you can join here and get your first ride free (up to $20) or you can join Lyft and get $30 towards your first ride.
