Aviator Sports and Events Center is closer than ever — thanks to a commuter van advertising the athletic complex.

Aviator is offering door-to-door van service as part of a new promotion to draw more fans.

The spiffy new wheels operate like a dollar van that you don’t need to flag down, according to spokeswoman Jaclyn Muns.

“You can now request to be taken to Aviator,” she said. “If you don’t have a car and you don’t want to wait for the Q35, this is a great alternative.”

Muns added that hitching a ride is as easy as texting the word “shuttle” to 41513 a half-hour ahead of time, and then just wait for the black Aviator van to come and scoop you up.

The vans run the length of Flatbush Avenue and Utica Avenue, stopping at Kings Plaza and going as far as the MetroTech Center in Downtown. Aviator Sports and Events seekers can be picked up at any train stop along the route, as well as the LIRR at Atlantic Terminal.

Yet not everyone is happy that Aviator recruiting dollar vans to bring people to Floyd Bennett Field.

“The commuter vans are a hazard, they have no rules,” said Community Board 18 District Manager Dorothy Turano. “They cut in and out. They’re not supposed to use bus routes. I think they’re an intrusion in the neighborho­od.”

Rides costs $4 and are available from 7 am to 9 pm.

Reach reporter Colin MIxson at or by calling (718) 260-4514.
