WHAT IS LAX-IT?
Opening on October 29, 2019, LAX-it will be the convenient new way to connect to your Taxi, Lyft, Opoli, or Uber ride when leaving LAX.
HOW WILL I GET TO LAX-IT AND HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
Get your steps in and follow the signs to walk to LAX-it. Terminals 1 and 7 are closest and will be a 3 to 8 minute walk; the farthest terminals, T4 and T5 are about a 19 minute walk.
Free shuttles with Wi-Fi will arrive at the LAX-it Stops on the first level outside of baggage claim every 3 to 5 minutes and make a maximum of two stops at the terminals before heading to the LAX-it area. The shuttle trip will take between 8 and 15 minutes.
WHAT WILL BE AT THE LAX-IT PICKUP LOCATION?
Once you arrive at LAX-it there will be restrooms, food trucks and cell phone charging stations as well as seating areas and tables with umbrellas for your convenience. Follow the signs to the pick-up area for the ride you are looking for.
WHY THE CHANGE?
LAX is undergoing a major physical transformation designed to enhance the traveler experience and give customers better and faster ways to access terminals. A new consolidated Rent-A-Car facility, an intermodal transportation facility and an automated people mover train connecting everything together will provide a more predict- able and reliable commute to and from the airport – saving time and improving the overall user experience.
At the same time, we will be modernizing every single terminal. Over the next three and a half years as these projects are being built, LAX will see major construction that includes closing as much as 30% of the curb that’s used for pickup and drop off. We need to take action now to alleviate traffic congestion in and around LAX until construction is complete. LAX-it will be the new and better way to catch Taxis, Lyft, Opoli, or Uber rides until the APM train opens in 2023.
ARE THERE CHANGES FOR LIMOUSINES?
There is no change or impact. Limousine chauffeurs will continue to meet guests inside at baggage claim or curbside. Limousines are still permitted to pick up curbside as the LAX-it changes do not pertain to chauffeured limousines.
