Fly Away Bus

The FlyAway Bus is a shuttle bus service created and funded by Los Angeles World Airports, which transports passengers non-stop to and from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Coach America provides the drivers and daily operations for the service. Currently, there are four routes in service with separate schedules; the routes have no stops in between their terminus stations and LAX.

At the airport, the blue buses are well-branded and easily distinguishable and pick up travelers at every terminal on the (lower) arrival level under green signs reading FlyAway, Buses and Long-Distance Vans. When dropping off passengers, the bus stops at each airport terminal on the (upper) departure level.

As well as using the fleet blue FlyAway branded buses, the FlyAway Bus sometimes uses the buses from the fleet of its operator, Coach America which does not have the same blue livery. The Westwood route has smaller clean-fueled, compressed natural gas (CNG) shuttles with free Wi-Fi internet access for passengers.

The LAX FlyAway bus network is owned by Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), the City of Los Angeles department which owns and operates three airports in Greater Los Angeles area. The FlyAway is part of the LAWA ground transportation initiative to improve passenger convenience, reduce traffic congestion and vehicle emissions pollutants by encouraging high-occupancy vehicle ridership as part of the LAX Master Plan Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program. LAWA reported the LAX FlyAway network serviced more than 1.5 million passengers in 2008; saving its passengers from driving a combined total of 23 million vehicle miles, and saving nearly one million gallons of gasoline.
