What's New on October 29:
Taxi/Uber/Lyft/Opoli/TNCs pickups move from Upper Level to LAX-it (east of Terminal 1, follow Lime Green Signs or take green LAX-it shuttles on Lower Level Inner Curb)
Taxi(only) in addition to LAX-it, taxis can also be picked up inside parking structure 3 (between TBIT & Terminal 3, lower level) and at the far end of Terminal 7 (outside baggage claim); if there are no taxis in the rank, there is a sign with a number to call to request one

If you really want to cheat the LAExit system, take the free shuttle to the Aviation/LAX metro station and call Uber for pickup from there. You will ride a bus for 15-20 minutes. I don't know what it would save you? $5 maybe?
At demand pricing and the LAX markup, a few more dollars than $5.

And that $5 seems to be paying for a lot of very well marked shuttle buses. I generally drive myself and park in Economy, which now has shuttles coming at a pretty reasonable frequency. I generally see a steady stream of LAXit buses go by, often nose to tail with each other, while I'm waiting for my parking shuttle. The bus ride to LAXit is quick, since they get to use the fast lanes, and if you're at T6 or T7 and don't have luggage it's usually a pleasant walk over to LAXit after sitting on a plane for a while.

If only In N Out Burger had a shuttle bus, they would solve two problems at once!

Yep, although waiting for the Walk signs on the signaled World Way crosswalks seems like it takes forever.

LAX-it

Does anyone have insight on where LAX-it will be moved to eventually? Presumably one of the APM stations--which one?

If you mean the rideshare station (not sure if there's any more to LAX-it than that) then I think it's going to be at the West ITA station.

LAX lower level drop off

Does anyone know if Uber and Lyft are now allowed to drop passengers off on the lower level? I heard that the rule prohibiting it was relaxed.

On the LAX website it still says drop off is upper level only for all modes. However, I'm not sure how strictly it is being enforced - their own social media accounts are known to advise people to use the other level if there is congestion. I have asked to be dropped off at lower level before and the Uber driver always agreed. I do add an extra tip if they do though... it's the least you can do for asking someone to do something technically out of bound.
