5 Metro Green Line Stations Close for Construction, Impacting LAX Shuttle

Green Line riders who use an airport shuttle to get to and from LAX face a change in pickup location and a longer ride starting Friday.

The G Shuttle to LAX, free to Green Line passengers who pay $1.75 one-way train fares, will stop at the Hawthorne/Lennox Station about four miles east of the airport rather than closer Aviation/LAX Station, according to an LAX announcement Monday.

Passengers can expect to add 30 minutes to their airport commute starting at 9 p.m. Friday when the Aviation/LAX Station and four others — Mariposa, El Segundo, Douglas and Redondo Beach — temporarily close.

The airport says the closures are required for access to the tracks during construction on the upcoming Crenshaw/LAX Line.
