Don’t Get Red-Flagged By Traffic: Flyaway Bus Service Wisks Passengers Between Lax And Long Beach Hotels, Convention Center And Grand Prix

Published on : Saturday, April 9, 2016

LaxTravelers heading to the Grand Prix of Long Beach from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) April 15-17 can avoid the hassles of traffic, help reduce air pollution, and save cash by using the nonstop FlyAway® bus service to the Long Beach Transit Gallery. The 25-mile ride costs just $7 one way and the FlyAway® stop in Long Beach is a short walking distance to several hotels, the convention center, and entertainment centers that comprise the hub of racing activities.

 

 

In time for the Grand Prix, airport officials today announced a new web-based system that allows FlyAway® riders to access real-time, bus-tracking information on selected routes including Long Beach, Hollywood, Santa Monica and Westwood.

 

 

To celebrate the 100th day of FlyAway® service at Long Beach, airport employees will distribute gift bags at the Long Beach stop to the first 100 riders beginning 6 a.m. on Thursday, April 7, 2016.

 

 

FlyAway® buses depart from LAX and the Long Beach Transit Gallery stop, located on the northwest corner of First Street and Long Beach Boulevard, every hour on the half-hour, between 5:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m., with a final trip leaving LAX at 10:30 p.m. Passengers are picked up and dropped off in front of each airline terminal at LAX. The trip takes less than an hour each way, depending upon traffic.

 

 

The FlyAway® bus service started in 1975, with the first route carrying passengers between a station near Van Nuys Airport and LAX. The Long Beach route was added December 30.

 

 

In 2015, the FlyAway® bus service transported more than 1.6 million passengers. Current fares range between $8 and $10 one-way, with an introductory fare of $7 through June 30 on the Long Beach route – a fraction of the cost of shared-ride services or a taxi. Two children under five years of age can ride free with each adult-paying customer.
