LAX-Bound Green Line Users Encouraged 
to Allow Extra Time During 16-Day Suspension of Rail Service at Stations West of Crenshaw

Published December 27, 2018

Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) is reminding guests at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to allow extra time when using the Metro Green Line during upcoming construction work that will temporarily suspend rail service at six Metro stations, including Aviation/LAX.

Green Line rail service will be unavailable between Hawthorne/Lennox Station and Redondo Beach Station beginning Friday, January 4 at 9 p.m. through Sunday, January 20, 2019, at 3 a.m. Free bus shuttle service connecting those Metro stations will be provided from Crenshaw Station.

The LAX G Shuttle, which provides service between the airport terminals and the Aviation/LAX Station, will continue to run from that station between 5 a.m. and midnight during the 16-day closure. Green Line riders can catch the eastbound Metro shuttle at Bay No. 3, and the westbound Metro shuttle at Bay No. 4 at the Aviation/LAX Station.


For guests riding the Green Line from points east of the airport, Metro’s shuttle will pick up in the Park-Ride Lot at the Crenshaw Station. Riders should follow signs to the boarding location. Airport-bound riders who would normally take the train from Hawthorne/Lennox Station can pick up the westbound Metro shuttle on northbound Hawthorne Boulevard.

Airport-bound guests traveling from south of the airport can catch the eastbound Metro shuttle to Aviation/LAX at the following locations:
• Redondo Beach: Bay No. 3 (below station)
• Douglas: Douglas Street at Park Place
• El Segundo: Westbound El Segundo Boulevard at Commuter Express 574 stop
• Mariposa: Nash Street at Torrance Transit 8 stop

LAX officials encourage Green Line riders heading to the airport to allow an additional 30 minutes to reach the airport during the work. Riders can get real-time location information on the G Shuttle by visiting

The rail service suspension is part of Metro’s work to connect the Green Line to the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project, which is scheduled to open in 2020. More information is available at For more information on the Green Line service interruption, please visit this website.
