Travelers who want to use the FlyAway bus service on their way to or from LAX now can be picked up and dropped off at the airport at the La Brea Avenue rail station, thanks to the expansion of service from Metro Rail’s Exposition Line.

FlyAway buses bound for the airport leave La Brea Station every two hours between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.; the return trip leaves Terminal 1 every two hours between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m.


Introductory one-way fares cost $6 each way, increasing by $1 in January. Travelers can access the service by taking the Exposition Line, which runs between downtown Los Angeles and Culver City.

Also, FlyAway bus fare between the airport and Van Nuys (7610 Woodley Ave.) increased Monday by $1 to $8 each way, according to an announcement by LAX.

Other one-way costs stay the same: $7 for Union Station in downtown Los Angeles and $10 for Westwood (outside UCLA Parking Structure 32, near Kinross Avenue and Weyburn Place).

The statement says the price hike is needed to shore up an annual deficit of about $531,000 on FlyAway service.
