San Pedro cruise terminal to LAX

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I just heard that Super Shuttle, our go to shuttle, is no longer in business.  Any suggestions for transportation to LAX from San Pedro?  We do not use Uber or Lyft for personal reasons.  What is taxi fare or are there other shuttles?  Any suggestions would be appreciated.  This would be for a cruise at the end of Sept.  Thanks for any help.

Probably your best shot would be to suck it up and pay for Princess' transfer.  It wasn't that much more than Super Shuttle and, overall, more convenient because it didn't make multiple stops at various hotels. We took it from the ship back up to LAX  and was very pleased with the organization by Princess and far less hassle than the alternative of Super Shuttle or Uber. If you are going in a day early on your independent air, you can stay at a hotel near the airport and then make your way over to the airport the day of the cruise to catch their shuttle.

Personally, I now take Uber...The service actually works quite well...It's very inexpensive compared to other choices, quicker pick-ups that a shuttle and you don't have to share the ride or make other stops.  For those afraid to get into a car with a driver they don't know, really you are doing the same thing wityh any taxi or shuttle.  We've never had a problem...

 

However, if you are absolutely set on NOT using Uber or Lyft, there are still several shuttle services still providing rides from LAX:  Prime Time Shuttle is the biggest with the most vans available, but there are also RoadRunner Shuttle, Karmel Shuttle and others.  Right now all are mostly sitting around idle as business at LAX is down 95% during the Covid-19 crisis...but, for now, one has to think that when the crisis is over, whenever that may be, these services will be back to full speed:

Hi

We're looking to go from LAX to San Pedro (not yet obviously!), can anyway give me a rough idea how much an Uber might be to help us way up options?

Thanks

It does depend on traffic (time of day, day of week), but usually $33-40.

I understand that some people just have their reasons for not using either of them, but it is Uber/Lyft that were directly responsible for Super Shuttle's demise in that they are overall much easier, faster, and a lot of times less expensive. In LA Uber/Lyft tend to be much nicer than a taxi service and think a bit safer. If it were between a taxi and the cruise line transportation I would definitely work with the cruise line, but would suggest giving Uber/Lyft a try.
