Airport Fly Away Bus

Note:  The Van Nuys FLYAWAY Bus picks up outside of each terminal at LAX, under the Green signs for 'FlyAway Buses & Long Distance Vans’. IMPORTANT: Los Angeles has six FlyAway stations, so you must read the sign on each bus to check the destination. VAN NUYS FlyAway is the closest station to CSUN. The Van Nuys bus goes directly (non-stop) from LAX to the Van Nuys FlyAway station. From the station, you can take a short taxi ride to CSUN (or other local destination). The taxis are located outside of the Van Nuys Flyways station.

Limousine Services

Upon arrival, collect your luggage and proceed outside. Look for the overhead orange Shared Ride Vans sign and wait for the van or car operated by the company you scheduled to assist you.
