SWW2017 Group Transportation from LAX Airport

There is no group transportation setup from LAX to SWW2017.

To save cost, if we can go in groups (using ride share companies such as Super Shuttle), we can save cost.

Ride share discounts might also require the same drop off point (not sure) so we might also have to coordinate a common drop off point.

If people are arriving around the same time I suggest we get together in groups at some common meeting point.

If people want to post when they will be arriving - then we can try to organize times and locations for people to meet and form groups to share rides.

Please include: arrival time, Airline, and hotel.

(I am not intending to be a group organizer or coordinator -

but if people post when they will arrive then others can contact them directly through their links to setup the groups)

I am not real familiar with LAX Ride Share Pickup points so if someone has ideas of meeting locations that would be good to post.
