The debate over parking congestion at LAX is heating up in court. The Parking Spot, a shuttle service that allows residents to park at a nearby lot and shuttle into the airport, has filed a legal challenge to the Los Angeles World Airport’s Environmental Impact Report, which was conducted as part of the Landside Access Modernization Plan to reduce airport congestion. The traffic report analyzed a reduction of airport traffic based on the elimination of shuttle services, like the parking spot, but neglected to analyze traffic patterns if ride sharing services like Uber and Lyft were disallowed from accessing the terminals. If the Parking Spot wins, the legal challenge would require that the airport analyze traffic congestion under both scenarios so that an informed future decision. As of now, there has been no official decision about terminal access. To learn more about the legal challenge, we sat down with Benjamin M. Reznik, the lead lawyer in the challenge, for an exclusive interview.
