Travel Information

Arriving at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)

One of the best and least expensive ways to get from LAX to Pasadena is to take the FlyAway bus to Union Station, then take the Metro Gold Line to Del Mar station in Pasadena. The FlyAway is an air-conditioned coach with bathroom facilities that departs from LAX every 30 mins, and takes around 30-45 mins to reach Union Station, depending on traffic. Once there, walk down the stairs towards the station and look for the Metro Gold Line to Pasadena. The Del Mar station is a short walk from the conference hotels (see map).

Information on how to pay for the FlyAway ($7 each way, payable by credit card only on arrival at Union Station) and how to take the Metro ($1.50 each way, payable before you ride) can be found on the FlyAway and Metro websites.

You can also take a shared van ride or shuttle service which are available on a walk-up or reservation basis and usually cost between $25-$45, with discounts for groups.  The vans are available outside of LAX baggage claim under the "shared ride van" sign. More information on transportation between area airports and the hotel can be found here.

Note that a taxi from LAX to the Pasadena area will cost over $80.

Arriving at Burbank Airport (BUR)

Conference participants may also want to consider booking travel through Burbank Airport, which includes domestic and limited international flights and is closer to Pasadena.

Shared shuttle service can be arranged on arrival, and typically costs $15-$25 each way.  Public transit is also available, with details listed on the website above.

Transportation to and from LTD-15

The Pasadena Convention Center is located within easy walking distance of all three conference hotels. See this map for the location.

Parking at the Pasadena Convention Center

Visitor parking is available at the convention center for $10 per day with the entrance off Euclid (see map).  Street parking immediately around the convention center is limited so be sure to read any parking signs carefully.  Free street parking is available several blocks south of the conference center (i.e. south of California Blvd.).
