Charter Party Carrier Permit Program

More than 2,700 companies and 11,000 charter party vehicles are authorized to operate at LAX. All charter party carriers that conduct business at LAX (i.e. pick-up passengers) are required to have a current executed license agreement with the Department of Airports, display a valid vehicle decal and have a functioning Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI) transponder affixed to each vehicle.

New Applications

Application Information

Annual License Agreement Review and Permit Decal Renewal

Current TCP companies will be notified by mail of their scheduled review and 2014/2015 decal renewal.

Check List of 2014 Required Documents

Once documents are received and processed, the Permits staff will phone to schedule an appointment for vehicle inspection and decal application.

Each company must adhere to the review instructions and maintain all License Agreement requirements (i.e. insurance requirements) to receive the vehicle permits. Operating with expired decals may result in driver citation, vehicle impound, and/or permanent revocation of the Non-Exclusive License Agreement. Failure to complete this process by the due date will result in the company being subject to suspension of operating privileges at LAX.

Note: It is the responsibility of the company to notify Landside Operations of any changes in contact information. The office is not responsible for undeliverable mail or communications.

Please contact the LAX Ground Transportation Permits Office at (424) 646-6460 or with any questions.

Operating with an expired decal is a violation of the LAX Commercial Vehicle Rules and Regulations and subject to citation and vehicle impound.
