Flying Through LAX This Week? You Can Use Public Transportation For Free
By DeAnna Taylor
The holiday season marks the busiest time of year for airports across the world. Los Angeles’ LAX airport is no different. With more than 26.8 million anticipated travelers coming through between Nov. 22 and Dec. 4., the airport is offering passengers free access to the city’s metro green line.
“This Thanksgiving holiday is projected to be the busiest on record, which means like last year, traffic will be bad during peak times, so our guests should know that they have many choices to access and leave LAX,” Deborah Flint, the CEO of Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), said in a statement. “We are providing more convenient and frequent choices for our guests who want to reduce their travel stress by opting for a public transportation option.”
You will simply be able to show the boarding pass for your flight to access the metro until Dec. 2.
In addition to the metro, the airport will be discounting tickets on its holiday shuttle. This option will run between LAX, Century City, and Santa Monica at a cost of $10 each way. You can travel between those destinations only and it will pick up and drop off once every hour.
There will also be an increased schedule for the FlyAway bus.
