The ride-sharing service Uber can now pick you up from the Los Angeles International Airport.

For more than two years Uber and Lyft have been allowed to drop passengers off at LAX, but picking them up was another story.

Uber is now the second ride-hailing company to be granted access; their rival Lyft started working full operations this past December.

According to airport officials, Lyft picked up more than 50,000 people in the first two weeks of their service.

The LAX permit requires that Lyft and Uber pay the airport a minimum of $25,000 per month for each drop-off and pickup.

Taxis pay a similar fee to make pick-ups at LAX, but drop-offs are free.
