Los Angeles Public Transportation

Travel Through the City with Ease

Though Los Angeles has been historically established as a driving city with many residents relying on cars as their primary mode of transportation, in recent years, the county has been making strides and investing more resources to updating their system for Los Angeles public transportation. While renting a car is always an option, we recommend trying mass transit for a more effortless stay at Kawada Hotel.

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) operates the Metro Rail, the Metro Liner, and the Metro Bus within Los Angeles County. The base Metro fare is $1.75 USD (day passes are also available for $7 USD) and the Metro Trip Planner is an easy tool that helps you navigate the different lines. In addition, Metro partially funds the Metrolink, a regional commuter rail system that connects LA County with Orange County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County, Ventura County, and Oceanside, CA. Click here to plan your trip using the official LA Metro website or ask our front desk staff for more information.

Active cyclists can also try out Metro’s new bike share program, launched in the summer of 2016. You can pay-per-trip with a credit or debit card at the station kiosk—rides are just $1.25 USD for 30 minutes. The Metro Bike Share introduced 65 bike stations to Downtown Los Angeles, making it a convenient option for guests at Kawada Hotel.
