HOLLYWOOD - Los Angeles City Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell joined Mayor Eric Garcetti and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) Executive Director Gina Marie Lindsey to announce the start of FlyAway® bus service between Los Angeles International Airport and Hollywood.
The FlyAway® bus stop is located at 6244 Hollywood Boulevard on the southeast corner of Argyle Avenue – one block east of Hollywood and Vine. Passenger drop off and pick up locations at LAX are in front of the Arrivals and Departures levels of each airline terminal.
"The addition of the FlyAway® service will help us build on all the elements that make Hollywood a world-class destination," said Councilmember O'Farrell. "The FlyAway® service will begin and end just steps from the iconic intersection of Hollywood and Vine, which is convenient to multiple public transportation options as well as hotels and attractions. I am thrilled I could assist LAWA in bringing this service to my district."
The new, low-cost bus service operates hourly from 5:15 a.m. to 10:15 p.m. daily, including weekends and holidays. Service is provided 15 minutes after each hour. Fare is $8 one way, according to LAWA.
According to the Mayor, first-year ridership between Hollywood and the airport is expected to exceed 125,000 passengers.
The Hollywood route joins four other routes already in operation at Santa Monica, Union Station, Van Nuys and Westwood.
