L.A. gives final approval for Uber, Lyft pick ups at LAX

Posted on August 27, 2015

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles City Council has given final approval to allow ride-hailing services, such as Uber and Lyft, to pick up passengers directly from Los Angeles International Airport, which could begin in a matter of weeks, KABC News reported.

The council initially asserted jurisdiction over the Airport Commission's decision to look over the issue following concerns that background checks weren't thorough enough and put customers at risk, the report said.

The council agreed to explore a possible city ordinance to require ride-hailing driver background checks to include fingerprint-based screening and to urge the California Public Utilities Commission, which regulates ride-hailing companies, to adopt new policies that require fingerprinting, according to KABC.
