LAX thrifty location

I have a 6:00am flight on a sunday. Which means that I need to return my car at the LAX Thrifty at 4am or so. Website says that they are 24 hrs

From people that have used Thrifty, do they have shuttles? How often are these shuttles running, especially at 4am in the morning on a sunday?

Thrifty is hit and miss sometimes with shuttles at LAX. I've had two tough experiences where they didnt show at a terminal for close to 20 or 30 minutes. By the time they did arrive, they were so full that they skipped those waiting at T5, T6, and T7. I've also seen huge queues waiting to pick up the shuttle at the return location.

Allow for some extra time with these guys....

i agree, Thrifty shuttle service at LAX is completely hit or miss. Sometimes I have had to wait 30 minutes. Sometimes the shuttle bus just drives right pass a terminal shuttle stop because of traffic. Allow a considerable amount of extra time for their shuttle.
