Africana Librarians Council 2019

Spring Meeting, May 8-10


Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Hollywood Burbank (BUR) are the two airports closest to UCLA. LAX is closer and more convenient, but you might get cheaper flights into Hollywood Burbank. Southwest Airlines flies into both airports.

If you are driving, here are Directions to UCLA.

Public Transportation


The Big Blue Bus requires a change in Santa Monica from the #3 or RAPID 3 to the #1 or #2, which will get you a few blocks from the UCLA Guest House.

The Culver City Bus #6 and RAPID 6 travel from LAX to the campus, close to the Luskin Center.

The LAX FlyAway Bus offers shuttles between LAX and Westwood Village. The fare is $10 with tickets available on the bus or online. Payments may be made with credit or debit card only. Check schedule for times as the bus is hourly only. Please note that it is close to a 1.5 mile uphill walk from the Westwood stop to the Charles E. Young Research Library (YRL). Depending on the day and time, taking a taxi, Uber, or Lyft from the bus stop is recommended.  NOTE: Effective March 18, 2019, Westwood FlyAway bus stop has relocated from Kinross Avenue to the northeast corner of Gayley Ave. and Strathmore Pl., which is not on the Campus Shuttle route.  

Super Shuttle a shared ride van company, operates out of LAX and is authorized to serve all Southern California counties. Reservations are recommended.

For addition information please visit LAX's Ground Transportation website.


Information on a variety of ground transportation options is available on the airport website, and includes contact details for further assistance.


The UCLA Campus Shuttle offers free service running weekdays 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (Hours may be affected by holidays or reduced hours during the summer or campus breaks.) The shuttle arrives at stops approximately every 8 to 10 minutes. In addition to serving campus, there are various stops in nearby Westwood Village . The shuttle stops closest to the Charles E. Young Research Library are at the intersection of Wyton Drive and Charles E. Young Drive East.


Public Transportation

Several bus routes have stops at the corner of Hilgard Avenue and Westholme Avenue on the east end of campus, as well as stops at the north end of Westwood Plaza closer to the central area of campus.

The Big Blue Bus serves West Los Angeles and Santa Monica. The base adult one-way fare is $1.25 cash per trip.
