FlyAway bus service links LAX to Irvine

For Orange County residents and visitors, access to our country’s third-busiest airport has just gotten a little easier. This week, a new nonstop FlyAway bus service began carrying passengers between Los Angeles International Airport and the Irvine Metrolink Station.

The new service on a 22-seat bus running on compressed natural gas is available to travelers six times daily in each direction. The earliest and latest departures from Irvine are 4:45 a.m. and 4:45 p.m, and, upon arrival at the airport, passengers are dropped off at their terminals on the departure level.

Buses headed to Irvine depart from the arrivals level of LAX between the hours of 9:45 a.m. and 9:45 p.m. See the LAWA website for the schedule.

The one-way fare for the 50-mile journey costs $25 per adult, and up to two students with student ID (from kindergarten through 8th grade) can ride free per paying adult. Children younger than 5 ride free. Riders must pay upon boarding the bus with a credit or debit card.

FlyAway buses also travel to LAX from Los Angeles’ Union Station, Van Nuys and Westwood.
