Personal Transportation for Hospital Visits

Whether you are young, or elderly, in shape or out of shape, keeping in good health may mean having to see a doctor once in a while and/or having a medical procedure done at some point. Let us know the next time you are in need of transportation to and from the hospital or clinic.

Elite Express’ fleet consists mainly of luxury-type vehicles, but we also have economy vehicles that can help you get you to and fro at an affordable price. Elite Express can even set up correspondence with the hospital or clinic staff to ensure your pickup time is arranged in a timely fashion. This will help to avoid any “wait fees” that can accrue when the driver needs to wait at the pickup location.

If you are having an out-patient procedure done, just  set up a roundtrip with by letting us know the estimated times you will need to be picked up. We will call you doctor’s office or hospital for you during the day to arrange the best pickup time for your return.

If you having an in-patient procedure done, we’ll set it up in the same way, except we will arrive the next day, or whenever you will be ready to leave the hospital.


Ever wish you could shop at all your favorite retail stores all in one location AND shop at a fraction of the cost?  Southern California’s many outlet shopping malls make this a reality–from Saks Fifth Avenue to Ralph Lauren and Nike, outlet shopping can be a fun and effective way to shop. Take a look at some popular outlets below. Let Elite Express make your outlet dreams come true!

Camarillo Premium Outlets, located north of Los Angeles along the 101 freeway boasts 144 stores is every day of the week.

Citadel Outlet is conveniently located, just 20 minutes southeast of Downtown L.A. With 84 stores it is a popular destination for groups looking for a half day trip.

Ontario Mills Outlet Mall is 40 minutes east of Los Angeles and unlike other outlets, is mostly indoors so you can shop without worrying about the hot temperatures in the San Bernadino County. It houses some 200 stores and even a movie theater.

Trip Idea  – Gather a group of friends who love to shop. Reserve a van or a minicoach based upon the number of passengers and factor in room for shopping bags on the return. By riding together and splitting the bill, you’ll be more able to enjoy the ride with friends, and not break the bank on transportation fees.

Weddings – Tips for Reserving a Vehicle

It’s not too early to book your limousine for a summer wedding! Below are some tips to help you plan a limousine for your special day:

Book ahead! Availability for any vehicle is on a first come, first serve basis. If you have a date set, then it is best to book well in advance to guarantee its availability.

Have an itinerary in mind for the big day. It will help you utilize the hourly charter best if you can outline a schedule for the driver. Your chauffeur can map out the best routes possible.

If you are planning transportation for guests from the hotel to wedding venue, it’s in your best interest to make a plan for stragglers. Guests that are prompt will appreciate arriving to their destination on time.

Make sure to have at least one person available who can make an executive decision on behalf of the wedding couple on the day of the wedding. Brides and grooms are usually not the ideal go-to person as they have a lot on their plate, for obvious reasons. But, a brother, a mother, or a dad of either the bride or groom, can make a great contact person for that day.

Lastly, we recommend signage on any vehicle that you may be using to shuttle guests. Hotels and wedding venues often book multiple weddings on the same day and time. Having a sign (“Groom’s last name + Bride’s last name”) ensures your guests won’t get into the wrong vehicle. (oh yes, its happened.)

Major airline terminal changes start today!

As we mentioned in yesterday’s post, starting today, May 12th until May 16th, LAX will be moving a total of 21 airline operations to different terminals. Please check yesterday’s post for which airlines will be reportedly making the move.

If you find yourself on the wrong side of LAX and have a flight to catch, not to worry. LAX has made several note-worthy preparations to assist travelers during this transitional phase. Below are just some of the services LAX has provided:

Shuttle buses will be available to transport passengers between terminals 2/3 and 5/6. Look for the neon green buses (available free of charge.)

Passengers can also utilize the free LAX “A” bus that operates between all terminals 24-hours-a -day, 7-days-a-week (runs every 10 minutes.)

During the week of the move, there will be reportedly 500 new signs throughout the terminal walkways to help navigate passengers to their correct locations.

Additional airport personnel will also be dedicated to assisting passengers who need help finding their way. (Look for staff wearing green neon vests.)

For FAQs, terminal changes, or any other questions, be sure check out the LAX provided resource page. As always, feel free to call Elite Express as an additional resource (310-534-7614.)

Major Terminal Changes at LAX beginning tomorrow!

Beginning tomorrow, LAX will be relocating many of its airline terminals, including Delta which has traditionally used Terminals 5 and 6 will now be using Terminals 2 and 3. The change comes in efforts to help make LAX a more efficient and user-friendly airport, something the airport has always been known to lack in. In all, 21 airlines will be moving their operations over the course of 5 days (May 12, 14, and 16th.)

How does this affect you as a traveler and customer of Elite Express?

As with any major change, passenger confusion and delays are always a possibility. To help, you can call before and confirm with your airline what your departure terminal and gate number should be. This will ensure you are dropped off at the proper terminal as to not be late for boarding. If, by any chance, you find yourself at the wrong side of the airport, you can find staff in green neon vests to help you direct you.

There will also be neon green shuttle buses available to transport passengers between Terminals 2/3 and 5/6. Passengers may also utilize a free LAX bus “A”, that operates between terminals 24 hrs, 7 days a week, and runs every 10 minutes.

Elite Express is here to help – please contact us should you have any questions on your travels during these dates.
