Kayte Deioma

LAX FlyAway buses provide point to point shuttle service on buses designed to carry passengers with luggage between Los Angeles International Airport and six Los Angeles locations for a fixed fee. LAX service picks up at the scheduled time at Terminal 1 and then stops at the other 6 terminals before leaving the airport. 

Union Station FlyAway Service

For visitors to Downtown Los Angeles, or Pasadena, the Union Station FlyAway will get you to Union Station in downtown Los Angeles.

From there you can catch the Metro Gold Line to Pasadena or catch a quick cab to Downtown hotels. The Union Station FlyAway runs every 30 minutes and takes about 45 minutes point to point. At LAX, passengers board buses on the Lower/Arrivals Level in front of each terminal under the green "FlyAway, Buses and Long Distance Vans" signs. Each bus is marked with its service location. Returning to LAX, passengers are dropped at each departure terminal. At Union Station, the FlyAway bus stop is on the Bus Plaza off of Vignes, at the back of the terminal. 

Hollywood FlyAway Service

The Hollywood FlyAway Stop is on the south side of Hollywood Boulevard, just east of Argyle Avenue, which is one block east of Vine, near the Red Line Metro stop, the W Hotel and Redbury Hotel. There is no overnight parking for this stop. For dropping off, there are metered street spaces and nearby lots. Shuttles leave hourly at quarter past the hour at the Hollywood stop and at LAX Terminal 1 beginning at 5:15 am.

Allow additional time for pick up at the other 6 LAX terminals.
