Transport fr Long Beach airport to Catalina Ferry terminal

Flying into Long Beach and taking the ferry to Catalina island. What is the most reasonable transportation for getting from the airport to the ferry building in downtown Long Beach?

The least expensive would be Long Beach Transit busses. It would take 2 busses and cost $1.25. The next best would be a taxi.

You can also try the shared van shuttle companies - www.primetimeshuttle.com or www.supershuttle.com - speed and cost probably both in between taxi and bus.

I'd take the taxi if there were more than one of you. Easy and fast with luggage.

Taxi, definitely.

Do not take the bus, it takes forever and goes through some iffy areas.

Thanks everyone. We ended up taking the taxi. It was a flat rate of $23 one way, which was much less than what was stated on the airport's website and the cost for two on one of the shuttle services.
