I fly into LAX about noon on 4/10.  I need to get to the hotel in San Pedro for my 4/11 cruise.

I am an senior w/mobility issues & I'll be traveling solo.  I'll have wheelchair assistance from the arrival gate to baggage claim.


I plan to book a car service for LAX to San Pedro.  I've read that "ride share" vehicles aren't allowed to pick-up at the terminal & that pax must use a shuttle to get to the ride share area.  How does this work for handicapped and/or seniors?  I know that I cannot get my bags, my rollator/walker & myself onto a shuttle.


Yes, I'll post this on the West Coast page too.

You mentioned that you have wheelchair assistance to baggage claim. It has been over 10 years since the last time I flew into LAX, however at that time the airline provided assistance to get our scooters and luggage and then escorted us to the shuttles. Other than drive our scooters, we did not have to do anything.


Currently, I have gate delivery for my scooter. In December, for my flight home, in Atlanta, I was escorted all the way to my connecting flight and in Minneapolis I was escorted all the way to the exterior door where my transportation was waiting. I do not know if that is a new standard or if those escorting me just enjoyed the walk. I attach my suitcase to the back of my scooter, thus I am totally independent. In both cases it was nice having someone to chat with.


I would suggest that you contact your airline and verify what service you are getting.


Have a wonderful cruise,
