  • Super Shuttle and Prime Time Shuttle. You can find them in designated ground transportation areas just beyond the baggage claim area. Each van has a sign indicating its destination. Make sure your van is going to Los Angeles. You can ask where and when to board a shuttle van by using the courtesy phones available near baggage claim. The cost of a shuttle from LAX to Los Angeles is approximately $15-$35, in some cases more, including a recommended tip for the driver. The shared ride van will take you to the destination you specify.

 

  • Taxi Service: An alternative to shared shuttles and vans are taxis, though beware that taxis in Los Angeles tend to be more expensive than in other cities due to traffic and farther distances. The cost from LAX to Otis College of Art and Design (main campus) is approximately $20.00.
