LAX FLYAWAY® HOLLYWOOD BUS STOP MOVES TO NEW LOCATION ON MARCH 1

            (Los Angeles, California – (March 1, 2017)  The Hollywood stop for the FlyAway® nonstop bus service to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is moving to 1627 North Vine Street, effective Wednesday, March 1.  The new location is on the west side of Vine, one-half block south of Hollywood Boulevard and one-tenth of a mile northwest from its previous location, where construction necessitates the change. 

To commemorate the new location, riders will receive FlyAway®-branded canvas tote bags containing luggage tags, TSA-endorsed locks, and information about LAX for travelers.  Airport staff will distribute the give-aways to riders beginning at 8 a.m. while supplies last.

            "In addition to Hollywood being a world-class destination, it is also a neighborhood that needs convenient, affordable transportation options to LAX," said Councilmember Mitch O'Farrell, whose District 13 includes the FlyAway® Hollywood bus stop.  "This new location on Vine Street south of Hollywood Boulevard is in a prime location next to public parking and near the 101 Freeway."

            “Over the years, the FlyAway® bus has become an indispensable resource for locals and visitors alike looking for convenient ways to travel to and from LAX,” said Los Angeles World Airports Deputy Executive Director for External Affairs Trevor Daley.  “While the location is changing, the bus schedule between the new stop and LAX will stay the same.”

            Buses depart from the Hollywood bus stop to LAX every hour from 5:15 a.m. to 9:15 p.m.  Buses depart LAX Terminal 1 to Hollywood every hour from 6:15 a.m. to 10:15 p.m.  Bus fare is $8 one way, payable on the bus or online with American Express, MasterCard, or Visa credit or debit cards.  Two children age five and under ride for free with each paying adult.  Cash is not accepted. FlyAway® travel information, including links to purchase tickets, can be found at www.LAXFlyAway.org.

            The Hollywood FlyAway® route served 86,123 passengers during 2016.  Under new management, its on-time performance was greater than 99.5 percent for the period from July 2016 to January 2017, which accounted for a total of 7,310 trips.  The Hollywood service also offers free Wi-Fi.

            In addition to the Hollywood location, FlyAway® service is available at five other locations:  Long Beach, Metro Orange Line (Van Nuys Lake Balboa area), Union Station, Van Nuys, and Westwood.  More than 1.6 million people used the FlyAway® bus service in 2016.
