The best solution for getting around the Bandit Faction at the level
changers in Garbage without reducing your relations ( running past
them will make them go hostile and reduce it by 1/2 a bar ) is to wait
for a blowout to commence. They will leave guarding that position and
you can go to another level without any trouble. Make sure you are not
overloaded as you may need to spring to shelter since you have less time.
