Transportation Network Company (TNC) Permit  

A new Non-Exclusive License Agreement (NELA) for Transportation Network Company services to and from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) was approved by the Board of Airport Commissioners on July 16, 2015. On August 25, 2015, Los Angeles City Council approved the Board's action.

To apply for a TNC NELA, please see the instructions and checklist document below. Among the requirements, applicants must hold a current, valid TNC permit from the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).

The following TNCs are approved to provide pick-up services from LAX:

  • Lyft, Inc.
  • Rasier-CA, LLC (Uber)

TNC drivers that possess their own TCP permit from the CPUC may apply for a TCP NELA. See Transportation Charter Party Permit Information. TCP NELA holders who concurrently participate on a TNC platform must abide by the terms and conditions of the TCP NELA.

Please contact the LAX Ground Transportation Permits Office at with any questions.
