Courtesy Transportation Services Permit 

More than 50 companies are authorized to provide courtesy ground transportation services to and from LAX and local hotel/motels and off-airport private parking facilities. All courtesy operators that conduct business at LAX (i.e. pick-up passengers) are required to have a current executed license agreement with the Department of Airports, display a valid vehicle decal and have a functioning Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI) transponder affixed to each vehicle.

Operating with an invalid vehicle transponder and/or expired decal are violations of the LAX Commercial Vehicle Rules and Regulations and subject to citation and vehicle impound.  

To apply for a Courtesy Services Non-Exclusive License Agreement (NELA), please see the instructions and checklist document below

Please contact the LAX Ground Transportation Permits Office at with any questions.
