90 minutes

Greetings from the LAX Avis rental car bus! It took 90 minutes to get here from Palmdale, leaving a couple of minutes after 3. I took 14-5-405-La Tijera-Airport Blvd; the 405 was pretty slow from the 10 to LAX but not a complete disaster by any stretch (about which I did not complain) . Thanks for all the advice!

Glad you made it! (Not that *I* ever had any doubt you would. )

Just ran across this shuttle service between LAX and Orange County...$20 each way. Pricing seems a little sketchy......They want $34 from LAX directly to SNA, but only $20 to an SNA airport hotel or address near the airport.

I have used this several times. It is $20 from LAX to SNA (or anywhere within their service area). Not sure how you got $34, maybe you searched for 2 people?

The website is owned by Prime Time, and it will always assign you to a Prime Time shuttle.

Since this is an old thread, it's prudent to note that they've eliminated the Irvine Flyaway service mentioned above.

Will they pick up from SNA airport terminals?

I don't see SNA on their list of pick up points, but if you give them the street address I don't see why not.

Friday night commute times?

I have a flight from ORD to Hawaii and am thinking of flying into L.A. the night before. I know that LA freeways can be nuts at certain times and days. I would be arriving into SNA around 7:30pm on a Friday night. I can also take a flight that gets me in around 9:30pm. What is a normal time to make this commute at these times on a Friday? I guess i could also stay near SNA and do the drive in the a.m. instead. How is this drive on a Saturday around 6am? Thanks!

Friday night hitting the freeway after say 7:45pm will be fine. Probably will take no more than 15 minutes longer than at 9:30pm or 6am on Saturday.

While I did book this for DH last year for LAX-Irvine, I was too hesitant to try them again last week. They have horrible reviews

They are some reports also in this thread (reports are less glowing from LAX than going to LAX):

Construction work may be scheduled during the night. I-405 near I-605 often has lane closures or full freeway closure from 10PM until 5AM for bridge work. Check the Cal Trans Lane Closure site here:

http://www.lcswebreports.dot.ca.gov/...do?district=12

For example, this coming Friday night, 12 December, it looks like they will start closing off lanes on I-405 near I-605 beginning at 10:00 PM, and completely closing lanes from 11:00 PM until 5:00 AM in both the Northbound and Southbound directions.

I have a flight out of LAX on Monday the 22nd of December at 7.20 PM. My return flight is Friday January 1st at 11.30 am .

I live in Irvine, maybe miles max from SNA. I was looking for the most economical and easy way to get to LAX but reading one of the posts gave me this idea:

I have 9 free rental days on National. I've had them for a long time and never redeem them. Would I be able to rent two one ways rewards, sna-lax and lax-sna?
