Union Station's FlyAway service to LAX is getting a little more convenient, with new morning service providing a slight bump in frequency from 5 to 10 a.m.

The new schedule, which went into effect this morning, offers service from Union Station to LAX at 5 a.m., 5:30 a.m., 5:50 a.m., 6:30 a.m. 6:45 a.m., 7:10 a.m., 7:30 a.m., 7:50 a.m., 8:10 a.m., 8:30 a.m., 8:50 a.m., 9:10 a.m., and 9:30 a.m. That's thirteen buses in a stretch that previously held ten. The changes only affect weekday service. Weekends and holidays remain on the half hour.

From 10am to 12:30 a.m., buses run every half hour, while service between 1 and 5 a.m. runs on the hour. Service is $4 each way.

A full schedule and further information can be found on the FlyAway web site.

Update (11pm): The Times has a story on the service expansion, which has been incorrect all day in saying that "LAX FlyAway buses will make an additional 13 weekday morning pickups from Union Station's Patsaouras Transit Plaza Bus Stop 9." Looking at the schedule, or just at the times mentioned, it's quite clear that they're adding just three new runs. The story first went up this morning, and is uncorrected as of 11pm.
