Los Angeles Airport and Transportation

How to get to and from the airport, and getting around the city on public transportation

Los Angeles Airport (LAX)

You'll be landing in LAX (Los Angeles International Airport), from where you should rent a car to get around the city. If you won't be going far from your hotel and choose not to have your own transport, you may prebook an airport transfer:

Getting Around

If you plan to go around the city, you really need your own car. Although Los Angeles has an extensive system of buses and a subway, you can't rely on them to reach all the places you'll want to visit in such a sprawling metropolis. Many areas are inaccessible without the automobile, and you'd have to go through frequent, impractical bus transfers for other parts of the city. You'd also spend more with a taxi service than with a car rental, as distances are long and the fares are high:
