The Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is the nation’s third busiest airport in annual passengers and the third busiest in annual aircraft operations. Although it has functioned as an airport since 1928, the main terminal complex at LAX was constructed in 1961. In order to continue to meet the needs of travelers and airlines in the 21st century, facilities at LAX must be continually upgraded and maintained.
To that end, LAX is currently undergoing a $14 billion modernization program. Its proposed Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP) would help improve the LAX passenger experience, relieve traffic congestion and make LAX a world-class airport.
Key elements of LAMP include:
- Improved connectivity and mobility for passengers and employees
- New convenient locations for passenger pick-up, drop-off, and parking outside of the Central Terminal Area
- Easier and more efficient access to rental cars
- Relieved congestion in the Central Terminal Area and on the surrounding streets
- Direct connection to public transit with future Automated People Mover station
