uberX Launches At LAX Today

Uber said today that its uberX service is launching today at 8am at the Los Angeles International Airport, allowing users of its app to request a ride from the airport. Uber said that riders will be picked up either at the lower arrivals or upper departures level, due to LAX regulations, and that users will be subject to both pickup and drop off surcharges, which are $4 each. uberX is the low-end ridesharing version of Uber, which matches up independent drivers driving their personal vehicles with customers.
