Where will Big Blue Take You?
January 01, 2017

Need a ride to LAX? Take Big Blue Bus Route 3 seven days a week, or Rapid 3 on weekdays only, from downtown Santa Monica to LAX for only $1.25 (single trip)!



The Fastest Way To/From LAX

Route 3 and Rapid 3 offer the easiest and most inexpensive way to LAX. Route 3 and Rapid 3 will drop you off at the LAX City Bus Center; look for a sign that says "LAX Shuttle" where you can catch the Lot South/City Bus Center Shuttle directly to your terminal. The shuttle runs approximately every 15-20 minutes and operates seven days a week.

From LAX Baggage Claim Terminals

Travelers should board the Lot South/City Bus Center Shuttle under the blue signs labeled "LAX Shuttle & Airline Connections" on the Lower/Arrivals Level islands in front of each terminal. Then you will disembark at the LAX City Bus Center and catch the Route 3 or Rapid 3 to your destination.
