LOS ANGELES (CNS) — The LAX FlyAway bus stop in Westwood will be moving to a new location closer to student housing and dormitories, officials announced Monday.

Starting March 18, the new location will be on Galey Avenue, just north of Strathmore Place on the east side of the street. Pre­viously, the Westwood Fly­Away stop was a nearly 1-mile walk into Westwood Village from the campus, officials said.

The new location’s in­ter­section also services Metro buses, Santa Clarita Tran­sit, LADOT, Antelope Val­ley Transit Authority com­mu­ter express buses, the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus, Amtrak Thruway, and Flix­Bus long distance ser­vice.

“When it comes to public transportation choices like the FlyAway bus, having a convenient location is crit­ic­al,” said Gabriel Es­hag­hian, a member of the Los Angeles Board of Airport Com­missioners. “The new Fly­Away stop loca­tion is easi­er for stu­dents and the greater Westside com­­munity to get to and pro­vides an excellent option for our LAX guests.”

The service’s schedule be­tween the new bus stop location and LAX re­mains unchanged, and the regular schedule from the Westwood bus stop to LAX operates hourly from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day, in­clu­ding Sundays and holidays.

“At only $10 per trip, the Westwood FlyAway con­tin­ues to be an easy, cost-effective option for those coming and going to LAX from UCLA and the surrounding neigh­bor­hoods,” said Keith Wil­schetz, deputy executive dir­ect­or for operations and emer­gency management at Los Angeles World Air­ports. “The new location is now much closer to UCLA student housing, and also services a wide var­i­ety of regional transit authorities.”
