Look for the GREEN FLY AWAY signs which are located at GROUND LEVEL in front of the baggage pick up area. Cross the road to the pedestrian median island and you MUST stand under the GREEN FLYAWAY sign for Long Distance Vans, Shuttles and Buses. Our drivers begin their pick up at Terminal 1 and continue to each terminal in order. Depending on congestion it can take 30-45 minutes to reach terminal 7. Look for the BAKERSFIELD sign on the right windshield. To be safe, please be at the designated pick up area at least 10 minutes prior to the pick up time.
