With the new Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) now open, increased international flight capacity, and airlines starting new service or routes, this holiday season is set to be one of the busiest yet at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
Here are the Five Top Tips for getting in, out and parking at the airport:
1. Use the LAX Cell Phone Waiting Lot to reduce stress! – The FREE 24-hour LAX Cell Phone Waiting Lot at 96th Street and Vicksburg Avenue (adjacent to the entrance of LAX Economy Parking Lot C) allows drivers picking up passengers to wait up to two hours for their visitors to call or text that they have landed—and can get to the airport quickly.
Hop on the internal LAX Shuttles marked Airline Connections, to get around the Central Terminal Area – Did you know LAX runs a FREE, frequent shuttle service? Stand under the blue sign marked LAX Shuttle-Airline Connection on the Lower/Arrivals Level to board LAX Shuttle marked “A-Airline Connection” to move between terminals, “C-96th Street” for LAX Parking Lot C or “G-Aviation” for the Metro Rail Green Line Station. This service will get you where you need to go at regular intervals, 24 hours a day.
Parking Structures 3 and 4 fill up fast – There are eight parking structures located across from LAX terminals, but the heaviest traffic during the holidays will be at Parking Structures 3 and 4. Consider parking at another structure and walking or using the free shuttle to the terminals.
Travel to LAX on the FlyAway® nonstop bus- Why drive to LAX when you can ride the economical and convenient FlyAway® bus service from Union Station, Van Nuys, Westwood and Expo/La Brea and get dropped off in front of your terminal? Leave the hassle of traffic behind and relax on the way to the terminal. Locations, schedules and pricing can be found here.
Use the LAX real-time traffic map! This real-time map showing real-time traffic conditions will help you see which entrances to the airport are less congested so you can get to your terminal faster and check out the many new great dining and shopping options now available at LAX.
