In LA, you worry about parking and traffic. This way, you don't have to worry. It's easy and clean but a tad slow, which is to be expected with all the stops. The ticketing is not that user-friendly but can be figured out.

I enjoyed my experience on the Metro Rail from Baltimore to DC and back. When I go back to this area of the country, I will be using the same method of travel.

While we usually evaluate metro systems in terms of their ability to get us around the city, you might check out the LA system for its design features. I went on a tour of some of the metro stops and was very impressed by the...More

so no more sheriffs. it's gotten a little shady since we got city employees doing security. other than that, it's fast getting where you need to go.

Great alternative to taxis and traffic in Los Angeles. A couple of bucks gets you where you need to go for the most part.

Best thing to have happened to Los Angeles in the 51 years I have lived here (coming from the East Coast).

The Metro station is clean and efficient. Security is good, it is well lit with a good security presence. Trains tend to be on time. The Station offers inexpensive eateries.

I would use Uber or Lyft. LA is all spread out and no public transportation gets you everywhere. I highly recommend staying somewhere central like West Hollywood because you can go to tourist attractions in Hollywood and... More

I bought an unlimited TAP card for one week. In 2015, it cost $25. If you are paying by the ride, and if it's anything like NYC's MetroCard, it is smart enough to count a Metro train and bus as one ride if both the Metro and... More
