A vacation beats workaday life any time of the week.
Going abroad gives you the opportunity to try new things, learn about other cultures and gain a deeper understanding of the world. But there are many obstacles to dodge before you reach your destination, like getting to the airport on time without getting antsy.
With that in mind, here are three stress-free transport tips for LAX travelers.
- Metro Rail
LAX airport is easily accessible by public transport, so traveling by Metro Rail is a marvelous idea and the airport provides a free shuttle bus service from the Metro Green Line Aviation station.
And the best thing about traveling by Metro is that it’s super convenient because you don’t have to worry about getting stuck in traffic.
You can find out about the train times on the Metro website and also check info on everything from fares to possible disruptions.
Travel by train isn’t for everyone — carriages can be crowded, luggage storage is elusive and there’s a risk of delays. So if these possibilities fill you with dread, a taxi might suit you better.
Taxis are available 24/7, so whatever time your flight is you’ll be able to catch a cab. You’ll also have a guaranteed space for your luggage and a friendly driver to help you haul it into the trunk.
They’re a more expensive type of public transport, but getting to the airport on time is priceless.
If you don’t want to rely on catching a curbside cab on departure day, consider using a taxi service such as Uber where you can book up to 30 days in advance.
If you have a car, driving might be your best option. It’s as convenient as a taxi because you’re not restricted by a timetable and can travel whenever you want. Plus, you can crank up your stereo on the way and get in the vacay groove without anyone complaining.
One thing that can be off-putting about driving to the airport is struggling to find airport parking that’s secure and convenient, but LAX airport has a range of parking available to suit your needs.
If you’re not sure where to start, parking comparison site Looking4.com has got you covered.
Finally, plan your journey to LAX precisely and give yourself some extra time – it’s better to arrive too early than too late. You should also try and find a back-up route you can take in case of traffic or delays on the day.
As you can see, there a quite a few ways for you to get to LAX airport — so pick the one that suits you best, give yourself plenty of time to prep and get off to a flying start with your vacation.
