The Los Angeles World Airports Board of Airport Commissioners approved the release of the final request for proposal to design, build, finance, operate, and maintain the Consolidated Rent-a-Car facility at Los Angeles International Airport.

The Consolidated Rent-a-Car facility will house rental car agencies in one facility and will be the eastern terminus for the Automated People Mover train system. The facility is designed to reduce congestion in and around the airport by eliminating the need for rental car shuttles to pick up and drop off in the terminal loop.

The project includes the design and construction of the Consolidated Rent-a-Car facility, rental car storage, a customer service building, cleaning and fueling facilities, and roadway improvements. The selected developer will also be responsible for operations and maintenance of the facility, as well as financing a portion of the project.
