FlyAway Bus vs. Shuttle2LAX.com
On May 16, 2011, the Daily Breeze reported that the FlyAway bus system, a service that transports travelers from Irvine to LAX, will likely post a $4.6 million deficit by the end of June. Yet at the same time, here at Shuttle2LAX.com, we are hurdling over our profit benchmarks at a rate that is excitedly shocking even to us. Why the difference?
Shuttle2LAX.com offers empty seats on privately owned airport shuttles at a hugely discounted flat rate to people traveling to and from LAX. Much of northern Orange County is within Shuttle2LAX.com’s service area including Irvine, Costa Mesa, Tustin, Santa Ana, and more.The discounts, particularly for Orange County travelers, are substantial.
The FlyAway bus offers a route from Orange Country that boards at the Irvine Station. Flyaway bus fare is $25 per person, while Shuttle2LAX.com is able to pick you up at your door and charges $20 for the first passenger and $11 for each additional passenger. For a party of four, the savings is $47.00!
