Courtesy Transportation Services Permit

More than 50 companies are authorized to provide courtesy ground transportation services to and from LAX and local hotel/motels and off-airport private parking facilities. All courtesy operators 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.

Operating with an invalid vehicle transponder and/or expired decal are violations of the LAX Commercial Vehicle Rules and Regulations and subject to citation and vehicle impound.

To apply for a Courtesy Services Non-Exclusive License Agreement (NELA), please see the instructions and checklist document below

Please contact the LAX Ground Transportation Permits Office at with any questions.

Transactions are completed by email or phone.
