Starting today, LAX bans Uber, Lyft and taxi pickups at the curb. See how the new system works

The days of stepping into an Uber, Lyft or taxi curbside at Los Angeles International Airport are over.

Starting Tuesday at 3 a.m., travelers leaving LAX will be required to board a shuttle or walk to a waiting area east of Terminal 1 to hire a car.

The changes were announced this month as part of LAX’s effort to manage congestion in the terminal area of the nation’s second-busiest airport, which will grow worse as the airport continues a $14-billion modernization effort.
