The Crenshaw/LAX Line will bring a station to the intersection of Aviation and Century — closer to LAX but still 1.3 miles from the beginning of the terminal horseshoe. Some of the initial alternatives being looked to connect that station to the airport are a light rail line, a people mover and bus rapid transit. Project page here.
