The LAX lot where you pick up a taxi or an Uber is a nightmare. The cab drivers rip you off, take out of the way routes and overcharge. Plus they all have sob stories and complain constantly! Uber & Lyft are on the other side of a chain link fence. How the heck do you go get in there anyway! Please!!! LAX.. just have some local buses that at least will drop us outside of this nightmare. Ugghhh.. when will you ever let us out easily and without a hassle from the drivers for hire!! Eeeekkkkk
