LAX's popular FlyAway bus service finally comes to Orange County

The first FlyAway bus service from Orange County to LAX is expected to begin Nov. 16 at a cost of $25 each way, L.A. airport officials said.

The popular bus service -- which already connects the airport to several spots in Los Angeles County -- will operate out of Irvine by Coach America Los Angeles.

“With the expansion of FlyAway to Irvine, we are increasing LAX’s contribution to reducing regional traffic congestion and improving air quality, while better serving our Orange County customers, especially those traveling internationally,” said Los Angeles World Airports Executive Director Gina Marie Lindsey. “FlyAway removes hundreds of thousands of cars each year from our roads, while providing a convenient, affordable way to use LAX. We believe Irvine has the potential to be a viable ground transportation alternative for travelers who prefer to ride than drive to LAX.”

The bus will operate from Irvine Station at 15215 Barranca Parkway. According to officials,  there will be 500 surface parking spaces where FlyAway passengers can park for free for up to 30 days.
