An upcoming trip has LAist leaving town on a numbingly early flight from LAX. How to get there? Take a shuttle and risk mistakenly reserving a spot on the line that's owned by extreme right-wingers? Hope for the public-transporation best and schlep a combo subway and bus? Bribe those we love out of the sleep they deserve? Maybe the solution is to pick a parking lot and let the car rest there for a few days. We've had some luck with C, which has decent access from the 105, but we're no expert. Which long-term parking lot at LAX has the perfect balance of un-crowdedness, cheapness, and convenient shuttles? Can we get a shuttle driver who plays something cooler than KOST?
