LAX FlyAway Shuttle Service to Westwood


Enter the UCLA campus on Westwood Blvd. and proceed to the kiosk on Westwood Blvd. located adjacent to parking structure 9. Tell the attendants you are here to attend MMWCon and they will allow you to purchase a daily parking permit for lot 9 for $12. After you have your materials drive up Westwood Blvd to the next light and make a right turn. You can enter lot 9 at either of the northern entrances to the lot. Please be sure to stop at the kiosk before you park because you must have a valid permit displayed on your car in order to avoid being ticketed. UCLA Staff and faculty from other UC campuses who have a valid parking permit may present their home campus permit as well as a current UC ID at the parking kiosk daily for free parking.
