The popular FlyAway Bus Service to and from the Los Angeles International Airport is expanding south.The Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners approved a three-year operating agreement with a bus operating company Tuesday to add a FlyAway route to and from Irvine Station. That's more than 40-miles in one direction.

"We are increasing LAX's contribution to reducing regional traffic congestion and improving air quality, while better serving our Orange County customers, especially those travelling internationally," Los Angeles World Airports Executive Director Gina Marie Lindsey said in a statement.

The Irvine Station is located at 15215 Barranca Parkway. It will have 500 parking spaces.

The other FlyAway locations are in Westwood, Van Nuys and Union Station.
