Getting to LAX is not usually a pleasant experience, between the traffic, the crowds, and the anticipated ordeal that is checking in and being screened. Add to that the fact that getting to the city's major airport by public transit is more challenging than perhaps it should be, and it's no wonder that despite fewer flights taking off, more people are turning to affordable ways to get themselves to LAX.

Now the popular and convenient FlyAway bus, which provides an economical and comfortable way to get to the airport from three hubs in town (Union Station, Van Nuys, and Westwood) has responded to "growing passenger demand" and has added additional early morning service from the Union Station departure point, reports the Daily News. The schedule will be as follows:

Buses will depart from Union Station's Patsaouras Transit Plaza Bus Stop 9 weekdays at 5 a.m., 5:30 a.m., 5:50 a.m., 6:30 a.m., 6:45 a.m., 7:10 a.m., 7:30 a.m., 7:50 a.m., 8:10 a.m., 8:30 a.m., 8:50 a.m., 9:10 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. [...]From 10 a.m. until 1 a.m. weekdays, buses leave every 30 minutes, on the hour and half-hour, and every hour between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m.

Of course, the problem that remains is one that Metro seems to staunchly refuse to be a part of its solution: Viable public transit linking directly to LAX.
