As Tony the Tiger might say, that’s great! One less thing to do at Union Station for those headed to LAX. Here’s the news release from Los Angeles World Airports, the city of Los Angeles agency that operates LAX:
(Los Angeles, California – October 16, 2012) – Tickets to ride the FlyAway® nonstop bus service to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) on the Union Station and Van Nuys routes can now be purchased on-line. The link to purchase on-line is
On-line purchased tickets are good for up to 30 days after purchase date. At time of boarding, customers can present printed confirmation as a boarding pass or have the capability to access the confirmation e-mail on their phones to be scanned by the bus driver.
Airport officials noted that the bar code is good for as many scans as the number of tickets purchased in a single transaction. There is no need to print multiple copies of the confirmation unless passengers are traveling separately.
Tickets are $7 per passenger each way, with children five years old and under riding free (limit two per paying passenger). All major credit cards are accepted. Cash is not accepted at this time.
On-line ticketing for the LAX FlyAway® between Westwood and the airport is expected at a future date.
Passengers ride dedicated, clean-fuel, high-occupancy buses to reduce ground traffic congestion and vehicle emissions around LAX and the region. LAX FlyAway® bus service is also in compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.
