Central Terminal Area

Central Terminal Area

Today's Front Door to the Airport

All passengers currently travel through the Central Terminal Area (CTA) to get to their flight. The new system at LAX will improve the traveling experience by reducing traffic congestion in the CTA. In the future, the Automated People Mover system will fundamentally change how the CTA works.

Intermodal Transportation Facilities

Creating Convenience and Choice for Air Travelers

The Intermodal Transportation Facilities (ITF) provide airport users multiple locations outside the terminal area to pick-up and drop off passengers, park their cars, check-in and get to their flights by taking the LAX Train.

THE INTERMODAL TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES WILL FEATURE

  • Fast and efficient access to the APM
  • Airport parking for private vehicles
  • Passenger pick-up/drop-off
  • Connections/transfers to hotels, shuttles/commercial vehicles, and transit
  • Amenities such as waiting areas, concessions, and ticketing/information kiosks
