Any kind of rail connection to LAX is still a distant dream, but there are four new FlyAway bus stops coming to relieve some of the pain of getting to the airport. Los Angeles World Airports, the operators of LAX, announced they're launching new stops in Santa Monica (in the summer), Hollywood (fall 2014), somewhere along the Orange Line in the Valley (late 2014), and in Torrance (mid-2015). LAWA--which already operates FlyAways from Van Nuys, Union Station, Westwood, Irvine, and the Expo Line--is obligated to run nine routes thanks to a court settlement related to its expansion plans. Even though most operate at a financial deficit, the buses carry millions of people directly to LAX every year and take countless cars off the road. As far as the new routes, the SaMo stop will be near the downtown Civic Center, with parking available; the Hollywood stop will likely be on Vine, south of Hollywood Boulevard; the Torrance stop will be near the future transit center near Crenshaw and Del Amo boulevards; and the Orange Line route will probably serve the Van Nuys station.
