FlyAway Fares Ascend

As noted earlier, the LA Board of Airport Commissioners today were scheduled to vote on increasing FlyAway fares a couple of dollars. Citing rising fuel costs, Van Nuys and Union Station routes increased from $4 to $6 and Westwood from $4 to $5 beginning Jan. 1, 2009. The board also voted a new discount fare of $4 for persons age 65 or over, disabled, or on Medicare (proof must be shown).

Their press release also added this little nugget: "LAWA is also actively working with Metro and Metrolink to allow FlyAway tickets to be dispensed through the automated ticketing machines as an added convenience to riders."
