Go Against The Grain
When it's crowded on the departures level (mornings), drop your passengers off on the arrivals level. Or, when picking passengers up when it's crowded in the evenings, have them meet you on the departures level.
West Way Shortcut
Avoid lower level World Way loop traffic. Take the West Way shortcut on the upper level (a sharp left past Terminal 2) and make a fast right at "to Arrivals," and you'll end up across from the International Terminal.
Quick Exit
On the lower level, take the West Way shortcut just past Terminal 2, then make a left at Center Way to exit the airport.
1, 2, 3 Exit
When picking up at Terminals 1, 2 or 3, get in the left lane, and when you reach the Tom Bradley International Terminal, make a left on Center Way, then stay to the right and you can exit the airport on the lower level.
Cell Phone Waiting Lot
Located off W. 96th Street next to LAX Parking Lot C, it's the perfect place to wait for passengers to arrive or they can meet you there via the "C" Shuttle.
