Los Angeles Airport Shuttle Pick-Ups
The pick-up point depends on your shuttle operator—private and hotel shuttles have a different meeting point from the scheduled shuttle bus services.
Scheduled shuttle buses pick up passengers on each terminal’s Lower/Arrivals Level islands. They stop under the orange Shared Rides signs.
Hotel shuttles and other privately operated shared transfers make stops on the Upper/Departures Level. Pick-ups occur next to the red curbside pylons.
Before you hop on a shuttle, double-check the operator and destination to ensure you’re entering the right vehicle.
