In addition, FlyAway provides frequent nonstop bus service connecting Westwood and LAX for $10 (credit or debit only). Campus pick-up location: Kinross Ave. between Gayley and Veteran (UCLA Parking Structure 32). Please note: UCLA Transportation recommends that you DO NOT purchase your FlyAway ticket online ahead of time as tickets are nonrefundable and do not guarantee you a seat. Additionally, FlyAway often experiences delays and overcrowding during peak travel periods. We suggest that you have a backup plan to FlyAway, such as using a rideshare service or grabbing a cab with fellow Bruins.
