Officials on Monday proposed four sites for a light-rail station at the Los Angeles International Airport and announced their “strong commitment and desire” to bring the project to fruition.
LAX board commissioners and staff selected two locations inside the Central Terminal Area (the most expensive option) west of Sepulveda, a facility near Economy Parking Lot C and a site by Manchester Square as potential locations for an L.A. Metro station.
LAX has also been evaluating a long-range ground transportation plan to the Central Terminal Area. Earlier in December, airport staff suggested new facilities east of Sepulveda Boulevard, including an intermodal transportation facility near Lot C and a consolidated rental car area near Manchester Square about a mile from the terminals. An automated people mover, such as a monorail, would connect the terminals with these facilities.
Airport staff has “accelerated planning work” with L.A. Metro officials to ensure a synergetic plan between the Century/Aviation station and the potential LAX connector.
