One of L.A.'s best traffic-beating ideas will soon hit Orange County. A non-stop FlyAway bus between the Irvine Station and Los Angeles International Airport was approved today by the city's Airport Commission. The three-year license agreement between Irvine and LAX means the fourth FlyAway route could start soon.

The Irvine Station is the busiest transit station in Orange County as well as the 14th busiest Amtrak station nationwide. The city will invest nearly $7,000 in start-up improvements and will also dedicate 500 free parking spaces to FlyAway passengers.
