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 similar to a shuttle system, running a limited schedule to popular destinations close to campus, including Playa Vista, Westfield Mall and more. The Lion Express also offers shuttle service to LAX for students who are traveling and will implement extended schedule hours around student breaks. Please see the LAX Travel webpage for more info.

Reservations are required any time a student would like a ride through Lion Express. Reservations must be made at least 1 hour in advance through the "TransLoc" app. Please see How to Reserve a Ride webpage for more details. Not all stops are available on all days. Please check the Lion Express Schedule for the most up-to-date information on our current routes.
