thanks! I see a cab from LAX to the Pier is around 35-40 so I definitely ask about a flat rate.
My only direct experience with taxi fares in Long Beach/San Pedro is from LGB to Crowne Plaza so I hesitate to comment, but $35-$40 seems low for a taxi fare from LAX to the pier unless it is available as a flat rate.
For a taxi ride from LAX to World Cruise Center (600 N Harbor Blvd, San Pedro, California), taxifarefinder.com suggests a 19.8 mile trip at $56.62 + tip for low traffic, $59.44 + tip for medium traffic, and $62.98 + tip for heavy traffic. A lower flat rate, of course, could very well be available.
I cannot vouch for taxifarefinder.com except when I have used it as a tool to estimate fares in Seattle and Long Beach, it has been close enough to actual to satisfy me.
I hope that you are correct about the fare from LAX to the pier and others with direct experience will comment.
