Los Angeles Public Transit

Updated: 2014-07-10 / (discoverlosangeles.com)

LA is home to one of the country’s best public transportation networks, including subways, light-rail, buses and shuttles to just about every corner of the Greater Los Angeles area.

Metro Trip Planning: The Basics

The Metro Trip Planner is a great tool to use when planning your way around Los Angeles. The tool generates detailed instructions on how to get to and from your destination. You can also download the Go Metro Los Angeles V2 mobile app to help you get around the city while on the go.

All transit rates start at a base fare of $1.50. In addition to a single-ride fare, options include the Metro Day Pass ($5) and the 7-Day Pass ($20). On the Metro Rail and the Metro Orange Line, single-ride fares, passes and stored value must be loaded on a Metro TAP card. TAP is a durable plastic card that you can use again and again. Buy and add value to a reusable TAP card from TAP vending machines located at Metro Rail or Metro Orange Line stations.The TAP card allows you to add money and/or choose from a daily, weekly, or monthly pass to add to your card. Buying a pass is often less expensive than the base fare price per ride.
