(see MTA promo video below. click on pictures to enlarge.)

There is an interesting, fairly new, transit bus line, called "Flyaway", that runs from Union Station and LAX transit center. They toute that it takes less than 40 minutes during the busiest time of day, to get end to end. I suppose that it would be a much faster trip during off-peak transit hours.

What I would like to know is how bicycles are accomodated on this bus line. The buses appear to be like Amtrak and Greyhound buses, with cargo bays under the buses. And if the policies are the same as the Amtrak and Greyhound buses, then I believe, bicycles can be stowed, without being boxed or disassembled, under the buses in those cargo bays. If anyone has more specific information, let me know or post in the comments so we all can know. See the promo video below.

And BTW, this seems to make a good transit option for those trying to get to and from Union Station in downtown L.A. and the LAX transit hub. And one nice feature about this service is that it runs 24 hours a day which may make it possible to get from LAX area to Santa Monica, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. How that can be done is by taking the bus to Union Station and then hoping on either the 33, 333, 4, or 304, MTA buses, which run 24 hours a day, or to hop on the Big Blue Bus #10 from Union Station, which is the fastest way to get from downtown Los Angeles to Santa Monica, even during rush hour, at the moment. However the Big Blue Bus stop running aroung 9pm most days of the week and doesn't begin picking up until about 6-7am many days during the week.
