Several bus companies offer services from LAX Airport to many parts of central Los Angeles.
One option is FlyAway, which is run by Los Angeles World Airports. It has six different routes that will all take you to central parts of LA in about 35 minutes.
A ticket costs $8.
The buses run every 30 minutes.
They're easily identified by their blue color, and are found outside of each terminal by following the 'FlyAway', 'Buses' and 'Long-Distance Vans' signs.
You can check the different routes from the FlyAway website.
You can also take one of the different public and private buses that depart from the LAX City Bus Center, close to parking lot C.
To get to parking lot C, follow the signs for 'LAX Shuttle & Airline Connections' from the lower arrivals area in front of each terminal to take the free Shuttle 'C-Bus', which leaves every 15-20 minutes, 24 hours a day.
The bus lines operating out of parking lot C are:
• Culver City Bus and
• Big Blue Bus.
While there are no direct rail links from LAX Airport to downtown LA, a combination of shuttle and metro will get you to the city center, but the journey takes at least an hour.
A free shuttle service (G-Bus) departs from the lower arrivals area in front of each terminal, and connects to the nearest light rail station, Aviation Station.
A Metro ticket cost $1.75.
The Metro service runs from 4:00 AM–00:08 AM.
Los Angeles International Airport is located 30 km from Los Angeles city. A number of taxi companies offer services from LAX to the city center.
A typical trip to downtown LA takes about 30 minutes.
Fares are around $45, but expect to pay around $70 to go to Disneyland.
Taxi cabs are located at the exit of each terminal.
You can also take a shared shuttle from the Lower/Arrivals Level in front of each terminal. Look for the orange 'Shared Ride Vans' signs.
If you don't want to deal with the hassle of taxi companies or long bus queues, you can prebook a ride via Kiwitaxi, an online booking platform that offers reliable and cheap airport transfers worldwide. The English-speaking driver will wait for you at the airport even if your flight is delayed, holding a sign with your name on it.
To avoid scams, do keep in mind that authorized taxis have a 'LADT' seal, and that you should normally be given a list of expected costs to main destinations.
