Getting around in Los Angeles

By Car

 

The Los Angeles roads are very well maintained and a car seems to be a must-have in this city. What you really must have is patience! The traffic can get very stressful in some days. A practical advice would be to get a map of the city and study the shortcuts (or "long cuts") during rush hour if you don't want to spend a good few hours on the highway.

 

By Public Transportation

 

The public transportation service does not seem to be LA's strong asset, because of the traffic, although there are a few good spots: to get in the downtown area, the best option is to take the MTA Metro and to get around the beach towns people often use Santa Monica's Big Blue Bus.

 

By Taxi, By Bike or Walking

 

Taking a cab is not the cheapest way to find your way around LA, because the tourist attractions and popular destinations are spread across the city.

 

Walking or riding the bike, are 2 great options to get around the city, but only for sightseeing or relaxation purposes. Los Angeles is a big city and despite the fact that the traffic is infernal sometimes, the need of a 4-wheel vehicle is essential here if you want to get across the other part of the city `fast`.
