How to Get Around in Los Angeles

How to Get Around in Los Angeles

One of the largest cities in the US, Los Angeles requires some planning and patience to navigate. With spread-out attractions and famously congested freeways, it's best to try and cluster your sightseeing and avoid travel during rush hour. Here's how to get where you want to go while keeping stress levels to a minimum. 

 

Ride the Metro

Los Angeles may have a reputation as a city of drivers, but its robust Metro public transit network connects all corners of the sprawling metropolitan area. Buses are a great option for shorter trips, while trams and two underground subway lines bypass the notorious LA traffic for cross-town journeys. 

 

Take a Hop-On Hop-Off Bus

If the idea of public transit seems daunting, a hop-on-hop-off-bus tour may be an easier option, with the added perk of narration along the way. Learn about passing sights and get on and off at dozens of major LA landmarks, from the La Brea Tar Pits to the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

 

Ride-Hailing Services

Like most major US cities, Los Angeles has widely available ride hailing that can help you save on car rental costs. Download a ride-hailing app such as Uber or Lyft, and relax while a local driver handles the traffic. 

 

Walk or Bike

Soak up the Tinseltown ambience with a stroll down famous streets such as Hollywood Boulevard and Rodeo Drive. Walking tours are also a great way to discover hidden gems among the more compact sections of Hollywood, Chinatown, and Beverly Hills. Alternatively, cover more ground while getting your daily exercise on a bike tour of the mostly flat city.
