Bus Transfers To and From LAX Airport
Buses from Los Angeles Airport with Bus Routes and Times
Within the LAX airport complex passengers have free shuttle services available that take them from the terminals to the car rental center and the remote parking lot C as well as to the metro station for the Green Line, a direct access route into downtown Los Angeles.
For this shuttle service passengers should assemble under the LAX Shuttle & Airline Connections sign, which is located on the Lower Level, where the arrivals zone is in front of each passenger terminal. The relevant shuttle is marked as "G" for Green Line. The service runs every 12 to 15 minutes between the terminal buildings and to/from the metro light rail station.
Taking the "C" line shuttle from the same pick-up location will take passengers to the Metro Bus Center, where city buses can be boarded that cover the Greater Los Angeles area. It is possible to get time table information directly at the terminal from the Information Display Board in the baggage reclaim zone at each terminal. A helpline also gives out information and passengers can use the free phones located in the arrivals areas. The telephone number is 323.GO.METRO or simply 323.466.3876.
Public transport includes buses from and to Los Angeles Airport. Passengers boarding the LAX FlyAway line can be assured of a speedy delivery to Van Nuys Bus Terminal from where travelers have access to Southern California's second airport Van Nuys. The FlyAway service also travels from LAX to the city center of Los Angeles and Westwood/UCLA as well as to the City of Irvine.
Also available at the Metro Bus Center by parking lot C are buses from the airport that travel to Culver City (via the Culver City Bus Lines), or to Santa Monica via Santa Monica Big Blue Buses. Torrance Transit lines also cover various areas around Los Angeles.
Los Angeles buses covering the various airport hotels are mostly free shuttle services provided by the hotels themselves for their guests. When booking overnight accommodation with any of the LAX airport hotels, guests should ask for the free shuttle services that pickup passengers at the airport and drop them off again at the end of their stay.
Passengers with a rental car reservation will either be met in the arrivals zone by a representative of the car hire company, if the company is permitted to do so. Some LAX car rental providers are only permitted access to the front of the terminals, where they collect their customers with their own shuttle, taking them to the off-airport complex car rental center. Among the latter are Advantage, Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, Fox, Payless, National and Thrifty.
Customers for the above companies should await pick-up under the purple sign "Rental Car Shuttles", which is located on the Lower Level in the Arrivals zone, where the islands for baggage reclaim are situated. Customers with an advance car hire reservation can use the free telephones at the interactive Visitors Information Centers (VIC's), which are also located in the baggage reclaim zones. The relevant telephone numbers are listed at this location.
Passengers looking for onward transportation with buses from Los Angeles Airport should head for the signs saying "FlyAway, Buses & Long Distances Vans", which are located outside each terminal on the Lower Level Arrivals areas.
Long distances Los Angeles buses like the Antelope Valley Airport Express will take passengers to Newhall, Lancaster and Palmdale, all cities located in the Antelope Valley. The furthest away is Lancaster, a trip of 75 miles or 121 km north of LA. The Airport Bus of Bakersfield takes passengers to Bakersfield, a two hour journey north of LA, while the Central Coast Shuttle will travel to Ventura, Santa Barbara, Santa Maria and Buellton.
Holidaymakers heading for the theme parks and family attractions with resort hotels should take the Grayline coaches, which go to Universal Studios, the Disneyland Hotel and all Anaheim Resort Hotels as well as travelling to Knott's Berry Farm. Mickey's Space Ship Shuttle also runs to Universal Studios, Knott's Berry Farm and all Disneyland Anaheim Resort Hotels, but also takes in the Orange County Convention Center, Buena Park, Garden Grove, John Wayne Airport, Huntington Beach and San Clemente.
Shuttle One travels to Disneyland and all the Anaheim Resort Hotels as well as to Knott's Berry Farm, Buena Park and Garden Grove destinations. The Santa Barbara Airbus covers Santa Barbara, Goleta and Carpinteria, coastal destinations located northwest of Los Angeles Airport. The journey time to these locations is between one and a half to two hours.
Also located to the northwest of LAX are the destinations Ventura and Oxnard, which are covered by Ventura County Airporter bus services. These coastal destinations are reached within one hour to one hour and a half after leaving LAX.
