LOS ANGELES (CNS) — The FlyAway non-stop bus service to Los Angeles International Airport is now accepting Metro TAP cards and EZ Transit Passes, airport officials announced.
Riders who use a TAP card or EZ Transit Pass to pay for a FlyAway trip may also receive a reduced fare depending on the route, loaded EZ Pass zone and method of payment.
“Adding TAP cards and EZ Transit Passes as accepted payment options make the FlyAway service a convenient choice for millions of card-carrying riders across the Los Angeles area, and we’re ready to welcome them,” Keith Wilschetz, deputy executive director for operations and emergency management at Los Angeles World Airports, said Wednesday, Nov. 1.
“With a simple ‘tap’ of a card, Metro and LAWA are improving the LAX guest experience by making non-stop access to LAX on the FlyAway easier than ever,” he said.
Instead of purchasing tickets online using a credit card, holders of TAP cards and TAP-EZ Transit Passes with enough stored value will be able to complete transactions for any FlyAway ticket at TAP card readers.
For Riders at Union Station and Van Nuys, customer service representatives will assist with TAP cards at the ticket counter, while riders of the Hollywood, Long Beach and Westwood routes will find TAP readers inside the FlyAway shuttle.
Riders on the Westwood and Long Beach routes who pay using a TAP card will pay $8, a discount from the routes’ regular price of $10 and $9, respectively. Pricing for the Hollywood, Orange Line, Union Station and Van Nuys routes will remain the same even when using a TAP card.
