LAX Flyaway operates a non-stop shuttle service to and from LAX Airport from bus stations in Hollywood, Long Beach, Union Station, and Van Nuys. Some routes offer frequent service every 15-30 minutes, while others only run once an hour. Check the schedules for each route below.
You don’t need a reservation because the Flyaway bus service operates on a first-come, first-served basis. Unfortunately, this means that the Flyaway shuttle will leave the airport once it’s full, skipping any waiting passengers at all other terminals (typically Terminals 4-8, beyond Tom Bradley International Terminal). To avoid this hassle, you should walk or take the LAX shuttle to an earlier terminal.

Passengers should arrive at least 10 minutes before the scheduled departure time. The shuttles do not allow any customers on board within two minutes of departure for safety reasons.
