Avoid These Options for Transportation to LAX
According to the all-knowing Wikipedia, LAX is the sixth busiest airport in the world. This massive airport handles over 60 million passengers a year. So, you can imagine the frustration one encounters when making their way to and from the airport. It isn’t as simple as driving yourself to the airport anymore, especially one the size of LAX. You need to actually have a plan, and that plan shouldn’t include any of the following transportation options if you actually want to get there on time and in one piece.
1. Cabs or Taxis
Cabs are probably one of the scariest options for transportation to LAX. It seems the bigger the city is the worse the driving skills are for cab drivers. While the option of a cab does allow for space for luggage, it just doesn’t seem worth the hassle. I don’t want to put my life in the hands of someone who makes their living by trying to fit as many fares into their day as possible
2. Public Transportation
I would normally say not to get me started on public transportation, but since that’s why I’m here, seriously, why would any self-respecting person choose to take the bus to the airport? Not only would you have a horrible time trying to lug around your luggage, but the caliber of people found on the buses in Los Angeles definitely leave something to be desired.
3. Airport Shuttle
You would think that the airport shuttle would be a viable option for getting to the airport. However, you would be sorely mistaken. The biggest issue would be their schedule. It would be a miracle to find an airport shuttle with a pick-up and drop-off time that coincides with your flight. Not only that, but they tend to be the unhappiest of people. You don’t want unhappy people handling your luggage!
4. Driving Yourself
This is probably the most stressful option out of the group. Who cares if you have room in the trunk to carry all of your luggage? It doesn’t seem worth it when you consider how much money you have to cough up to store your car while you’re out of town. Also just imagine stressing about your car being in good hands while you’re away! I hear so many horror stories about people leaving cars in the overnight lots that I wouldn’t want to risk leaving my car there for 15 minutes, let alone a few days.
When you’re dealing with an airport the size of LAX, you should be prepared for the stress involved when arriving and leaving. One way to ease some of that stress is to consider all your options for transportation to LAX. If you choose the right one you can ensure you start your trip off on the right foot.
