Shuttle from Vegas to LA?

I am in need of guidance, VT.
I'm all booked up to attend #vimfp, and i'm stoked on that.
My wife is shooting a commercial in LA over that week/weekend and i'm picking her up, doing a little jaunt to pasadena and back before the festivities officially begin on saturday.
i, however, don't want to do the r/t drive twice in one weekend...
is there a shuttle bus or cheapo air service that will take her back to LA on sunday evening or monday morning that you folks might be aware of?
*edit--i'm also actively looking on google, but i know a fair few of you are so cal/vegas residents and might know something i can't find easily online.

JetBlue has one way flights from LA-Vegas and vice versa for about $47. Not sure if you consider that cheap, but that's how much it costs me on average for 1 tank of gas that I use all of when traveling from Vegas to LA.

I've heard of Lux Bus:
And American Lion:

most of the "cheap" LA shuttles are old Greyhounds and there's a 99% chance you'll be the only native english speaker on it...check for a cheap flight, it's a quick up and down, and you should be able to get it for around the same price as a shuttle

Don't do American Lion unless you're hard up on cash. You pay $25, but you feel like you're going to get shanked on the bus on the six hour trip there.
These buses don't get the proper maintenance as they should and you can feel it in the jarring motions.
In the very least pay less than half more and get some kind of security at Greyhound. Who at least maintains their buses.
Highly recommend the red eye bus at midnight or so. 5 hours and you're there. Stopover in Barstow at McD's. The other companies get kickbacks for stopping over in Baker, ghetto and dark. Kinda scary at night and bleak barren and depressing when you have to stay near the bus and can't explore. Also the other buses take 6-7 hours.
Just take Southwest. Or Jetblue. One hour and you're there. Totally worth it.
But stay away from American Lion. Their customer service people are crap. And shady. And will help their own [Mexican] people first. They actually put a Mexican lady on first when I was actually able to get on. They said something about if I just paid a dude for his seat I wouldn't get insurance coverage if they crashed. Fcukers. I bet they would try to pull that crop.. And when you're on, people talk and talk so it's loud and the clientele is ghetto, and urban. Not the cool urban types either. Like legit urban. Like the yell in your face and swing their hand around urban if you accidentally look at them sideways kind of urban. And the tv is on the whole time and to loud. And there is static so you can't even see what's going on the little 5 inch screen..
There are some van services available too that pick up from Union Station but I have never used them. You never know with them and they're the Craigslist posters. And their prices keep changing based on what they think they can get out of you. Hope this helps someone. Just take the plane. Seriously. Love life for an hour of your time, or hate life for six. Your call.
