FLYAWAY BUS SERVICE OFFERS HOLIDAY TRAVEL TIPS
With Thanksgiving weekend travel plans kicking off the holiday season in a big way, large volumes of travelers are expected to use the FlyAway bus service as a low-cost, convenient transportation option from the San Fernando Valley to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
"We encourage travelers to plan ahead, because the bus terminal is a very popular location during the holidays, especially Thanksgiving," said Van Nuys Airport Manager Selena Birk. "The parking lot at the FlyAway could fill to capacity as early as this Tuesday."
To avoid delays and traffic congestion, travelers should observe these suggestions:
- Arrange to be dropped off at the terminal.
- For those drivers using the parking lot, use it as few days as possible to free up spaces for others. The parking fee is $2 per day. The maximum time limit for parked vehicles in the lot is 15 days. Call (818) 994-5554 to find out if the parking lot is full.
- Allow extra time for possible delays due to traffic congestion and baggage check-in at LAX.
- Be aware there is no reserve seating on the bus.
The Van Nuys FlyAway bus terminal, located at 7610 Woodley Ave. at Saticoy Street, provides fast, scheduled transportation from Van Nuys to LAX. Roundtrip fares are $6 for adults (ages 13 and up) and $3.50 for children (ages two through 12). Children under age two are free. For more information, call (818) 994-5554.
