Exactly this ideas has been taking to heart by the Tesloop founders. – get city to city rides (and of course airport rides) within South California.

I priced out the ride from LAX to Palm Springs and it comes out to about $120 one-way with Uber Pool.
Tesloop prices it at $79 each way. This is before the 20% discount using promo code TESLOOPFB20.
Tesloop has limited departures during the day – Uber picks you up right away.

The service currently operates between Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange County, and Palm Springs, including LAX. I hope Northern California is next!
