The city of Los Angeles was designed with the automobile in mind, as such renting a car seems to be the best way to get around. The city of LA sprawls over such a large area that getting around without a car can be frustrating and time consuming. The complex network of freeways connecting the sprawl can be intimidating, especially for those not used to driving in big cities, but with a GPS or good directions, hiring a car is the best and most popular way to see LA.
At Los Angeles International Airport, rental car offices are located away from the airline terminals. Approximately 40 rental car companies operate out of LAX, but only ten rental car companies are permitted to pick-up and drop-off their customers directly from the airline terminals using courtesy shuttles. Rental car courtesy shuttles pick up passengers under the purple sign Car Rental Shuttles.
