Los Angeles to Ojai

I'm looking for a way to get from downtown LA to Ojai.

As i'm from Australia I am hesitant to hire a car and drive myself (other side of the road and all).

Any bus or even train info would be AMAZING!

Take the Pacific Surfliner to the Ventura station. Costs about $19 and takes about 2 hours.

At the Ventura train station, take the #6 bus towards VENTURA (not Oxnard) and exit at the transit station a few minutes later. At the transit center, transfer to the # 16 bus which takes you to Ojai.

Single ride fares are $1.35 with a free transfer. Note! The #16 bus does not ride on Saturdays.

have fun

It's really not that problematic although renting a car is an easier way to go.

Depending on the time of day and which day of the week, the drive can be very easy and stress free.

We went to Australia. We needed to drive to make our visit memorable, not dependent on public transportation......that would have limited, seriously, where we could go.

OKAY. We learned to drive on the 'wrong' side of the road, just by staying aware.

You would be so much better off with a car and the flexibility. FWIW.

I agree with Puter. I just got back from driving for 2 weeks in England by myself with no GPS. And California roads are usually wide and easy to manuever.

Hi, I am interested in finding out about the shuttle from LA to Ojai. I know my family (who happens to be moving to Ojai in the summer) will love to pick me up, but would like to know what the options are to make it easier for people.
