LONG BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- There's a new option kicking off on Wednesday for air travelers trying to get from downtown Long Beach to Los Angeles International Airport.

The FlyAway buses will leave every hour from 5:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. from the Long Beach Transit Gallery at the corner of First Street and Long Beach Boulevard.

For the first six months, a promotional fare of $7 is being offered for a one-way trip. For each adult fare, two children age 5 and under can ride for free.

FlyAway service is already available from Hollywood, Santa Monica, Westwood/UCLA, Van Nuys, Union Station and the Metro Orange Line's Woodley Station in Lake Balboa.

In the meantime, fares for the Van Nuys, Metro Orange Line and Union Station airport shuttles will increase from $8 to $9 on New Year's Day, airport officials said. The fare will increase to $9.75 in 2017.
