The Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners approved an easement from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to construct a bus bay and install a shelter for a new Flyaway station along the Orange Line busway. Flyaway buses take passengers to and from Los Angeles International Airport.
The Army Corps owns the property on the south side of Victory Boulevard east of Woodley Avenue, where buses will pick up and drop off travelers when the service begins Oct. 1.
Flyaway service to LAX currently operates from a terminal in the 7600 block of Woodley Avenue in Van Nuys, more than a mile and a half north of the Orange Line stop.
The airport commissioners approved the 25-year easement and annual $2,500 payments to the Army Corps to cover administrative expenses at their meeting on Thursday.
In addition to the bus bay and shelter, Los Angeles World Airports will also put in a new sidewalk and relocate part of a bike path that comes through the property.
The commission agreed to expand the Flyaway service to the Orange Line in May when it approved a $76 million contract with Pacific Coast Sightseeing Tours and Charters Inc. to operate from the Van Nuys terminal.
