Travel from LAX to Lancaster for 26th August

We are 2 senior travellers from Australia trying to find a way to travel by public transport from LAX to Lancaster for an event on 26th August. We are flying in from San Francisco. Haven't booked this flight yet as not sure of travel time to Lancaster and if able to even get there. I have contacted metrolink, greyhound, hotels in Lancaster etc without any success.

Have had one reply immediately in travel forum [america site]from a past resident of Lancaster and will check out his welcome suggestion.

Can anyone assist us further with this as we really want to go to Lancaster for the pro-bull riding which we love watching every week in Ausssie-land.

Lancaster is exactly 90 minutes from Los Angeles by car. I don't know of any way to get there, except by car.

To Wanderer -thankyou so much, as even with all my searching I had not found this shuttle service. Will definately use this to get to Lancaster as my husband doesn't want to drive on what he considers the wrong side of the road. Had a bad experience in Las Vegas a couple of years ago so no more driving. Thank goodness as it made me a nervous wreck anyway. Have checked out your link and am now co-ordinating flight arrival times with the shuttle service. Thanks again as we are reallly keen to finish fulfiling our wish list in your wonderful country. This trip we are off to Dallas first to see Johnny Mathis and visist President Kennedy's memorial museum, then to San Fran to see the golden gate bridge, Pro-bull riding in Lancaster, Disneyland, Las Vegas, a tour of the Canyonlands and a cruise from LA to Australia. All easy to arrange except the Lancaster leg!!
