Good news for people who lack a car, reliable friends or whatever sum Uber is charging to get you to LAX: FlyAway Bus Service is expanding its coverage over the next two years.

This week the Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners announced that it plans to open FlyAway sites in Hollywood, Santa Monica, Torrance and start up service from Irvine again. It also looks like the Van Nuys route will include an extra stop to pick up Orange Line passengers about a mile north of the current stop.

FlyAway already picks up airline passengers bound for LAX at Union Station, Westwood, the Expo Line as well as Van Nuys. But the bus service run by the city agency Los Angeles World Airports was ordered by a court to expand its services to eight stops by 2015.

The plan is to open a stop near Santa Monica's city center in Summer 2014, a stop near on Vine near Hollywood Blvd. in Fall 2014, the Orange Line stop in late 2014 and a stop at Torrance's planned transit center by the middle of 2015.
