PERSONAL TEXT MESSAGES will be sent to every reserved passenger departing from LAX. This message will confirm pickup time and location and show a picture of the bus that you will be boarding. Messages will also be sent to alert any changes, delays, etc. This is not possible with an international phone number.

ATTENTION: We’ve just been notified that, effective Wednesday, March 20, 2019, LAX has revised pick-up locations as a way of improving safety by reducing congestion. Beginning March 20th, our pickup locations will be limited to Terminals 2, 4, 6 and 7. Please click here for more details.

Upon exiting the terminal look for this green sign at the other side of the pickup lane over the median island. This is where the bus will pick you up. 

Depending on congestion, it may take 30-45 minutes to reach Terminal 7. Due to late flight arrivals, our departure from LAX may be delayed for up to 30 minutes. Thank you for accommodating your fellow passengers. To be safe, be at the designated pickup area at least 10 minutes prior to pickup time.All AVE units have BAKERSFIELD written on the front and an American flag image on both sides.
