Los Angeles airport officials agreed on Thursday to allow ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft to operate at Los Angeles International Airport, making it the largest airport in the country to permit such services, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The decision could take effect as early as late August, pending approval by the city attorney, the Times says.
The Board of Airport Commissioners declined to comment on its decision.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who holds the power to appoint airport commissioners, issued a statement applauding the decision as part of his agenda to ease L.A.'s transportation woes.
"Ridesharing is becoming popular in Los Angeles, and we want to give LAX passengers the same transportation options that they have throughout our city, " he said.
The mayor noted that trips would still be subject to congestion-reducing rules and a required $4 airport fee.
He pointed out that LAX passengers seeking to use Uber or Lyft had been taking shuttles to nearby streets outside the airport before the board's decision anyway.
Uber didn't immediately respond to calls for comment.
