Los Angeles International Airport is planning to completely get rid of curbside pick ups by rideshare and taxi drivers at the arrival terminal.
According to ABC 7, LAX is requiring travelers to take a shuttle bus to their rideshare pickup area, but drop offs are expected to continue on the upper deck of the airport. The modifications are expected to go into effect on Oct.29 at 3 a.m.
However, some frequent travelers took it to Twitter to share their opinions on the recent changes.

“For anyone freaking out about the LAX rideshare news: you can still get one from the airport. They’re just shoving them off into their own designated area so they don’t f*** up traffic.” -@jezi_belle
