By now, you may have heard of the new developments at LAX and the Automated People Mover opening in 2023. In the meantime, changes have been made to the pickup process at LAX for both TNC and TCP drivers.
While the drop-off process remains unchanged, LAX-it (pronounced LA Exit) is billed as a convenient and centralized area for arriving passengers to be picked up by a taxi or ride app service, alleviating traffic in the Central Terminal Area (CTA).
LAX-it is an amenity-rich area located east of Terminal 1. LAX-it is walkable from terminals 1, 2, and 7 or accessible via a free, dedicated shuttle from all LAX terminals. The shuttles can be found at dedicated stops at each terminal on the lower/arrivals level, as to not compete with other airport traffic. Shuttles will come every 3 to 5 minutes during peak hours.
It’s an exciting time for the Opoli Family as LAX-it opens with a prime location for Opoli users. Oploi loading areas 1A and 1B are located just west of the shuttle drop-off area, complete with cellphone charging stations, Wi-Fi, and food trucks nearby. The Opoli location allows drivers and passengers to connect seamlessly, so passengers can easily hop in and go.
The new LAX-it shuttle system and staging for rideshare services launch October 29th. This brings several changes for drivers.
Changes for TNC pickup are as follows:
Changes for TCP pickup are as follows:
