Located outside of Terminal in Arrivals
At the airport, most ground transport options are located outside of the terminal at the arrivals level. On the inner curb, you will find buses such as the Flyaway, LAX Terminal Connector, LAX-IT Shuttle, and more. On the outer curb, you can find private car pickups or shared ride vans that go to a variety of places around Los Angeles. The only shuttle that can be found on the departure level (Level 2) is the hotel shuttle.
A rental car is essential if traveling to a friend on the outskirts of the San Bernardino Mountains or simply taking a fun drive down Interstate 405.
To access, head to the ARRIVALS level (Level 1) and exit the terminal. Outside, head to the outer curb (where personal cars are) and look for the purple signs and columns.
* LAX finishes its new train and consolidated rental car facility next year, making this obsolete soon.
