Consolidated Rent-A-Car Facility
The Consolidated Rental Car Facility (ConRAC) will allow 20+ car rental brands, which are currently located in an scattered array of LAX proximate locations, to be housed in a single 6.3 million square foot mega-building complex that is connected to every LAX passenger terminal via the new Automated People Mover (APM). The passengers will arrive at an open air landscaped plaza where they will have a direct sightline to the car rental companies retail areas located in two buildings a short distance from the APM station. 80% of the passengers who have reserved a car may proceed directly to the parking stall that is identified by the car rental smart phone app via the three escalator and elevator cores for direct access to each company’s rental car fleets. ConRAC is a highly efficient machine to take a car that is returned by a customer and make it ready for a new customer in 8 minutes. There are 186 fuel pumps and 40 car washes in the Ready Return Building to make this happen.
