Los Angeles City Council voted on Tuesday to let ride-hailing services such as UberX and Lyft pick up passengers at the city's international airport. Los Angeles International Airport will become the largest U.S. air hub to allow the practice. Aides to council members said the 9-6 vote affirmed an action in June by members of the local airport commission. The proposal to allow ride-hailing services to pick up at LAX has drawn fierce opposition from taxi companies and drivers, who are faced with new competition from the mobile phone-based services and have lobbied against them in many parts of the country.
