Bakersfield-to-LAX bus service gets new departure spot

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — The new bus service from Bakersfield to Los Angeles International Airport is getting ready to start up, but the departure location has changed.

Interstate Bus had planned to use the Bakersfield Amtrak station as its pick-up and drop-off spot. It will now use the Golden Empire Transit District bus stop nearby at Truxtun Avenue and S Street.

The company president told Eyewitness News that there were concerns about having enough parking spaces at the Amtrak station.

The first runs to LAX will be this Sunday. The company plans six runs a day to their airport.
