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 Loyola Marymount, including Playa Vista, Venice Beach, Santa Monica 3rd Street Promenade, Westfield Mall and many more! The Lion Express also offers shuttle service to LAX for students who are traveling and offer extended schedule hours around student breaks. Reservations are required any time you would like Lion Express to take you to a destination or pick you up from one.

*Please view Lion Express Hours for school breaks on our "LAX Shuttle" Page.
