SFO started remote baggage check-in at their long term parking garage about 2 miles north of the Terminals. Unfortuntely, it doesn't seem to catching on because of the price, $5 per bag.

I fail to see how airport authorities at LAX hope to incentivize something, but have people pay for it.
Not all who wander are lost....

The incentive is not having to stand in check-in lines. I would do it in a heartbeat when it is extended to the Union Station Fly-Away. I think this service is going to be very popular.
