Greyhound Bus lines is the national bus company.  In L.A., it operates out of the bus station at 1716 E. 7th St. This is an industrial area just east of downtown. Busses arrive and depart for all parts of the country as well as local busses for other parts of Los Angeles.

It's really too far from the core of downtown to comfortably walk to the Greyhound station, and there is some rough territory in between. You can get there from Downtown on Metro's number 60 local bus, or a little further away on the 760 Rapid. It's within reasonable taxi range. 

There are other stations in the metropolitan area incliuding:

  • Los Angeles (Olympic) at 4910 E Olympic Bl, ,Los Angeles, CA 90022; Telephone: 323-261-5522; Greyhound Package Express: 323-261-5522; Greyhound Charter: 800-454-2487

  • North Hollywood at 11239 Magnolia Blvd North Hollywood, CA 91601-3703 Telephone: (818) 761-5119
  • Pasadena at 645 E Walnut St Pasadena, CA 91101-1611. Telephone: (626) 792-5116
  • (The Hollywood depot on Cahuenga Bl is closed)

In addition, some Greyhound Buses stop at Union (Rail) Station in downtown L.A. (which has easier public transit access than the E. 7th St depot).  The busses pull up at a bus stop in front of the rail station.  Sometimes, Greyhound's busses appear on the Amtrak.com (national rail company) schedule, most notably, buses that connect with Las Vegas, Nevada
