Far will be discounted first six months
The Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners this week set a $7 one-way fare for the newest FlyAway bus service, which will shuttle travelers between Metro’s Exposition Line at La Brea Avenue and LAX starting this spring. But during the first six months of the new Expo bus service, the rate will be discounted to $6 one-way. Airport officials say the cost of running the new service, which will make 18 trips a day, is $267,000 a year. The airport commissioners also signed off on raising the one-way fare to $8 for FlyAway bus service between the Van Nuys bus terminal and LAX. The $1 increase will go into effect July 1, and is expected to reduce an annual $531,000 deficit in the budget for operating and maintaining the Van Nuys terminal to $168,000.
