Connecting LAX

Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP)

 

Los Angeles is known for many things—fun and sun, glitz and glamor, and traffic. To help remedy the latter, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) has embarked on its Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which aims to relieve congestion for people traveling to and from the fifth-busiest airport in the world and second busiest in the U.S. 

Automated People Mover (APM) - an elevated 2.25-mile electric train system comprised of six stations that will connect travelers to the regional rail system, rental car facility and other drop-off/pick-up locations.

 

Through its various congestion-relieving elements, the LAMP is expected to enhance the traveler experience and give customers time-certain access to terminals. To accomplish all this, there are five main components that will provide a more predictable and reliable commute to and from the airport – saving time and improving the overall user experience.





 


Current Challenges Solutions 
  • Unreliable travel times to and from the airport (i.e. sometimes it takes 45 minutes to travel through the terminal loop)

  • Significant traffic congestion on freeways and on surrounding surface streets

  • No direct passenger connection to Metro rail

  • Dispersed location of current rental car facilities with significant shuttle traffic around the terminal area

     

          
  • APM will offer time-certain transportation options to and from the airport    

  • APM will relieve traffic congestion in and out of the airport and surrounding area by eliminating shuttle trips to/from the terminal area

  • APM allows easy access to Metro’s new 96th Street/Aviation Blvd. transit station which will connect to both the LAX/Crenshaw and Green Lines

  • ITF creates new, convenient locations for passenger pick-up, drop-off and parking

  • ConRAC provides easier and more efficient access to rental cars
