Save Gas! Travel by Rail or Bus

As with any trip, plan ahead! For traveling within Los Angeles County, use the Metro Trip Planner or Google Maps as a guide. If traveling from Northern California, San Diego County or anywhere in-between, please consider using Amtrak or Greyhound. Listed below are many of the transit services available within the Greater Los Angeles County. The Complete Rider's Guide applies to all Metro bus and rail services.

Please check ahead, times and services may differ on weekends and holidays.

Go Metro!

If you live anywhere within the Greater Los Angeles County, from Pasadena to San Fernando Valley, or from Long Beach to the heart of the City of Los Angeles, take any one of the Metro Rail Lines closest to you. No need to deal with traffic congestion or unhealthy smog on your trip. A one-way trip ticket or an all-day pass could cost less than a gallon of gas. Fare tickets must be purchased prior to boarding.

The Metro Rail system is comprised of the Metro Expo, Blue, Green, Purple, Red and Gold Lines.

  • The Metro Expo Line (Line 806 Timetable PDF) runs east and west from Downtown LA to Culver City.
  • The Metro Blue Line (Line 801 Timetable PDF) runs north and south between Long Beach and Los Angeles.
  • The Metro Green Line (Line 803 Timetable PDF) crosses the Blue Line, running east and west between Norwalk and Redondo Beach, curving south near the Los Angeles International Airport.
  • The Metro Purple Line (Line 805 Timetable PDF) subway shares six stations with the Red Line Downtown (see below) and continues to the Mid-Wilshire area.
  • The Metro Red Line (Line 802 Timetable PDF) subway meets the Blue Line in Los Angeles and provides service through Downtown, between Union Station, the Mid-Wilshire area, Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley, where it meets the Metro Orange Line (Line 901 Timetable PDF) bus transit-way.
  • The Metro Gold Line (Line 804 Timetable PDF) connects with the Red Line at Union Station and runs northeast to Pasadena. Del Mar Station is the closest station to the convention center.
