LAX to Century Wilshire (Westwood/UCLA)

Hi,

I need to get from LAX to the Century Wilshire hotel which is near Westwood/UCLA with a group of 6 people. What would be the most efficient (cheapest/fastest) way to do this?

Thanks for your help

Fastest/most efficient considering the # of people with luggage: Supershuttle
You can hire a dedicated blue Supershuttle Van at the airport for $67, allows up to 7 people. Would take 20-40 minutes depending on traffic. Can actually be reserved online at supershuttle.com (the Century Wilshire is in their computer system).

Cheapest: MTA Bus
(Route planner from mta.net)
Starting at LAX
Ride Lot C Shuttle ( AIRPORT PARKING - 96TH ST) heading south
From: WORLD WAY NORTH/TOM BRADLEY TERMINAL (or your arrival terminal)
To: LAX TRANSIT CENTER Ar:
No Charge
Ride Culver City 6 (SEPULVEDA BL) heading east
From: LAX TRANSIT CENTER DOCK 2
To: WESTWOOD BL/LINDBROOK DR(SE corner)
Pay $0.75 x 6 = $4.50.
Ending at 10776 WILSHIRE BLVD
Trip time is about 1 hour and 11 minutes.
Trip distance is about 13.29 miles.

Let us know how you like the Century Wilshire. I stayed there a LOOONG time ago on my first trip to LA (I didn't have a car and you could actually walk or bus to a few places from it!) I believe it's been renovated once or twice since then.

For what it's worth:

The estimate of 1 hour + is for especially busy (e.g., rush hour) traffic.

During non-peak periods, door-to-door can be as little as 20 minutes.
