– Los Angeles has the second largest public transportation agency in the nation that operates more than 1,500 buses. We also have a subway system that can take you from Downtown Los Angeles to Hollywood in about 15 minutes! Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) operates the public buses and commuter trains within Los Angeles. The metro.net has extensive schedule information, trip planners and much more.
– and other tips about using Metro, such as how to pay fare, getting to some of the famous tourist attractions, identifying buses by their color and more. The Metro Trip Planner is fast and easy to use. You can use it to plan routes in advances, so you don’t waste valuable vacation time. You can also use the Metro Trip Planner to find out if your hotel is near convenient Metro routes BEFORE you make your reservations! If you are going to rely on public transportation while visiting Los Angeles, then it’s very helpful to become familiar with metro.net!
Forget all the negative information about public traffic in LA. It’s just as good and safe as anywhere in the world. Take the bus and metro and see it’s fairly reliable and that drivers are friendly and polite (towards every person!). Same goes for security people. Just take that bus, stop complaining and meet the world!
There are over 200 metro bus lines and 6 metro rail lines in the Los Angeles area that are run by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro). You can get to almost anywhere in the developed parts of Los Angeles County on Metro and/or on other local transit services. Some transfers are quick and easy; others, less so. Detailed information, along with a trip planner, can be found here: http://www.metro.net/default.asp
The metro rail lines are:
1. Green line Metro Rail (above ground): Runs east/west between Norwalk and Redondo Beach with a stop at LAX (Note: the Green Line’s trains do not service the beach itself; you must transfer to a Bay Cities Transit bus to reach the beach.. Similarly, the LAX station for the Green Line is not at LAX. A shuttle bus meets the train and transfers passengers to the airport.
2. Red Line Metro Rail (underground): Service between Union Station (Downtown), Mid-Wilshire area, Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley (Universal Studios and North Hollywood).
3. Purple Line Metro Rail (underground) Service between Union Station (Downtown), Mid-Wilshire area and Koreatown.
4. Blue Line Metro Rail (mostly above ground): Runs north/south between Los Angeles and Long Beach.
5. Gold Line Metro Rail: Runs northeast into Pasadena and southeast to East Los Angeles.
6. Expo Line Metro Rail: Runs from downtown L.A. to Culver City and, eventually, will continue to the ocean.
Other Public Transit LInes:
Orange Line Metro Transit Way (from North Hollywood to Woodland Hills/Warner): Metro names this line with a color (Orange) like the metro RAIL lines but classifies it as a “transit way”. It operates like a rail line in that it runs on a separate “right of way” (its own roadway) but it uses buses.
Santa Monica, Venice and much of the “‘west side” is accessible only by bus. Sometimes, more than one bus needs to be taken. Unlike the metro rail, the metro buses are affected by automobile traffic, making the ride longest during rush hours (weekdays between 6 and 9 in the morning and between 2:30 and 7:00 in the afternoon and evening).
Santa Monica’s Big Blue Bus #3 runs frequently along Lincoln Blvd (a street which is sometimes referred to as ‘Route 1’), connects easily to the Culver City Bus #1 directly to Venice Beach, and also goes directly into Santa Monica. The #3 also services LAX via the LAX “Transit Center” a bus depot adjacent to LAX, accessible to LAX passengers via a free shuttle bus that serves the adjacent parking area for the airport. The shuttle bus is known as the “Parking Lot C” shuttle.

The city of San Francisco has developed a Climate Action Strategy that includes an ambitious goal of getting to 80% sustainable trips by 2030. The City defines a “sustainable trip” as biking, walking or taking transit. Given emissions from vehicles are responsible for 46% of San Francisco’s carbon footprint, replacing car travel with biking, walking and taking transit would reduce greenhouse emissions
Since David Fields arrived on the job in Houston in February he has been a man in motion, even as the city nearly ground to halt to stop COVID-19.
As the city’s first chief transportation planner — a position aimed at coordinating Houston’s ever-changing streets into a coherent system for drivers, transit users, cyclists and anyone who uses the roads — Fields finds himself watching along with the rest of us what the virus and lockdown are doing to commute patterns and recreational trips through neighborhoods. Traffic may have dropped dramatically on local freeways but bayou trails are teeming with runners and bike riders.
Fields came from a private sector job in San Francisco, where much of his work was for local governments and transit agencies redesigning streets, plazas and bus and train depots, and establishing policies for parking and vehicle use.
In an email discussion, Fields says in the future residents could find streets that consider more than just cars, where safety for everyone trumps speed, depending on what the city is trying to achieve for particular streets so sprawling Houston can get full use of the funds it dedicates to roads.
As you look at upcoming plans and projects around the city, how is COVID-19 affecting them? Are there tangible things that are changing or are the changes more conceptual, in the sense we might not know what demand is going to look like 12-18-24 months out any longer?
Streets are funny things. Some people see them as having just two purposes: Movement and storage. That might be cars, bikes, transit, or walking, but for all of them, we often limit in our minds what this very physical and expensive infrastructure can do for us.
COVID-19 is reminding us that streets don’t need to do the same job, 24 hours per day, seven days per week, 365 days per year. If we limit streets to these two jobs, we’re not getting the full value out of our investment in our city. While our streets move people at some times of day, those same roads can be used as play spaces at other times. Businesses reminded us that space used for parking sometimes can be used for restaurant pick-up zones at other times.
Learning this lesson is a huge benefit for our city, because the more ways we can use our roads, the more value we provide to our community.
LANDSCAPE PLANNER: Post-pandemic world could be ‘a little bit slower and a whole lot greener’
From a planning perspective, has the new coronavirus bought you a little time to sort things out? The challenge here historically has been projects rarely have kept up with traffic and often induced demand makes the shelf life of their benefits much shorter. So, is there a silver lining to a pause?
COVID-19 is a teaching moment. It’s time to take a hard look about what we thought could never change. One of those big topics is believing that everyone who commutes must commute
