Los Angeles - LAX-Irvine FlyAway to cease by mid-September

Coach America goes Chapter 11. Three-year contract expires November 2012. FY11-12 averaged 48 riders per day. Loss averaged $21.89 per passenger.
I used the FarAway service twice from Irvine. On one occasion I was one of two people on the bus :(.
The Irvine service was poorly conceived and poorly marketed. Probably better to focus the resources elsewhere.

We were big fans of the concept and tried utilizing the service on numerous occasions over the past few years... maybe 15 different trips? Not once did the shuttle schedule ever come anywhere remotely close to coinciding with our flight needs, especially for late arriving flights. The frequency and time slots were just absurd.
The fact that Prime Time is providing door-to-door service for $5 less than FlyAway didn't really help either.
