Three major airports can be used

Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)

From LAX to Hilton Pasadena we recommend:

Note that there may be no clear sign at the airport for the FlyAway bus stop, but it should be easy to find once you exit the Arrivals at the terminal on ground floor. Ask at an Info desk to be referred to the FlyAway stop outside. Also note that you need to pay in cash, upon arrival at Union Station, after you exit the bus and before picking up your luggage. Payment is at a cashier, not the driver.
