Booking a taxi pick-up from LAX?

Hi folks

Myself and a business colleague are heading to LA in a couple of weeks for a big Expo in Anaheim. We are staying right near the convention centre for our stay so don't want to bother with a hire car. That being the case we need to get from LAX to our hotel near Disneyland.

Are there any good taxi firms in the LA/LAX area we can book in advance to pick us up at the airport and take us to the hotel? What sort of amount should we expect to pay for that trip? It looks like a fairly short distance but, having visited LA before, I know it can take a LONG time to get through the city to anywhere.

Many thanks!

A taxi is around $100, maybe more in heavy traffic. (around 40 miles)

There are other options, such as a shared van service, or you can arrange a private van or town car.

Here is a list of all your options.

You might want to look into the Disneyland Express bus, which travels from LAX to Disneyland and the various hotels around Disneyland:


Otherwise, I'd look to a shared van company www.primetimeshuttle.com or www.supershuttle.com to save some money.

As mentioned, a taxi will be around $100 if not more.

FYI, the link in post #2 is a reseller of the Disneyland Express Airport Bus, here is a link to the actual company that provides the service.

If you decide to take a taxi, just grab one outside any LAX terminal. The last time we went from LAX to Anaheim, we took a shuttle (Prime Time), but shuttles do, of course, make stops for other passengers unless you book a van for yourself. Taxi would be the easiest but, as noted, expensive. By the way, if you do ask about getting your own car, say you want to rent, not hire. Have a good trip.

It is not a short distance from LAX to the Anaheim Convention Center, 35 miles or so. You could be looking at $120 or more for a taxi. I would look at booking a private car or van from someone such as http://www.execucar.com
