I need to get to the Burbank / Bob Hope Airport tomorrow (January 14, 2012), and I was wondering if there is a low cost bus/shuttle to get from the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to the Burbank/Bob Hope Airport (BUR)?

Upon checking out private shuttle services and taxis, the cost is too high ($20+), yet I was wondering if there is a low cost bus that goes between LAX and BUR? If so, can you tell me the name of the bus company (include a link in your post to the company), about how much is a one-way or round-trip on the bus, and where do I catch the bus at LAX.

Thank you in advance.

Wilson

There are very few public bus companies in the L.A. area. You'd have to rely on the L.A. transit district for "cheap" busses.

$20 sounds very cheap to me. We paid close to that for a taxi from BUR to Universal City. Taking a series of L.A. Metro public busses from LAX to Burbank Airport? That would take longer and be very uncomfortable, IMHO. www.metro.net has info on public transit in L.A. County. But I couldn't find a way for it to give an all-local-bus option (you may have to phone). It gave just two options: 1) Using the default rail-and-bus option: FlyAway bus from LAX to Union station, and Metrolink commuter train from there (est. 60-90 mins.); 2) Using all-bus option under "Advanced" options: FlyAway bus to Van Nuys, and local busses from there (est. 120-180 mins.). While the first option may cost $13+ and the second one $7+, the time difference is substantial. Fares/schedules for Metrolink trains can be found at http://www.metrolinktrains.com/ Beyond that you'll have to do some Web searching and/or phone calling to see if you can make the trip using just local busses (no special FlyAway bus).

$20 is not expensive when you consider the time and inconvenience of trying to get their by MTA buses. You could do that for under $5.00 but uou will likely have to transfer in downtown Los Angeles and then again somewhere in the SFV. If you can get a direct shuttle between the two airports for $20 do it!

3 dollars for LAX Flyaway to Union Station ... There may be a flyaway shuttle going from Union to Burbank airport ... If not, Metrolink has service from Union Station to Burbank.
