Did you know that for just $5, you can obtain a day pass that will give you unlimited access to all Metro bus, rail, and subway lines? Forget the hassles of finding or paying for parking while you explore Los Angeles. Many Metro stations provide customer parking for free or at low-cost.
When I come to visit L.A., I often leave from El Monte Station in the San Gabriel Valley and ride the Silver Line (included when you buy a day pass) that gets me downtown quicker than by car—typically in 20-25 minutes. Connecting Metro Rail lines through downtown serve destinations such as Culver City, Pasadena, North Hollywood and Long Beach. Get to know the system and come out and explore L.A. for a day, the Metro way!
