LET US HELP MAKE YOUR COMMUTE TO WORK BETTER
Did you know that LAX has over *22,500 employees who regularly report onsite? That’s a LOT of cars on the road and that’s why LAWA launched commuteLAX, a Transportation Management Organization (TMO) that helps LAX employees find alternative commute options to help ease their commute to work.
*22,500 includes TMO represented employees and LAWA employees as of December 2022.

TRANSIT TRIP PLANNING
Want to leave your car at home and take the bus or train but don’t know where to start? Complete an Interest Form and we’ll help you find the best route to work.
In addition to numerous transit options to get to and around LAX, the Union Station and Van Nuys Airport FlyAway buses are a great commute option for employees at the terminals. Employees who work outside the terminals can use Metro Micro to connect to work locations. Monthly passes for employees cost $120, and can be purchased on the FlyAway Bus app. Employees must create an account and email FlyAwayCustomerService@lawa.org to manually add the monthly pass purchase option to your account. Once an employee’s monthly pass purchase option is added to their account, the Employee Monthly pass will be available under the Buy Passes section of the mobile app. Employees can select Monthly Pass and pay the fare through the app. Once purchased, the pass will be available in My Passes and needs to be activated before the first ride of the month.
