The Lion Express is a free shuttle service offered to Loyola Marymount University students. Our minivan shuttles allow LMU students without a car a chance to get off campus and enjoy some of the activities, restaurants, shops and services in the local area. The shuttle operates like a bus system, running a set schedule to popular destinations close to campus, including Playa Vista, Venice Beach, Santa Monica 3rd Street Promenade, Westfield Mall and many more.
