This has to be one of the shortest "railways" in the US, if not the world. Very quaint rail car originally constructed to serve the residents of downtown L.A,, especially the Bunker Hill area. The attraction takes you up Bunker Hill (California Plaza, South Grand...More

Take a ride on a historic part of Los Angeles. Family friendly and inexpensive, directly across the street from Grand Central Market. Unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.

Take the easy route up the hill for US$1 or 50 cents if you have a tap card, step aboard at the bottom and pay at the top.

Easy transport from Grand Central Market to up hill locations such as the Broad and Museum of Contemporary Art and anything northwest of Olive Street. The fare was reasonable at .50 cents each way with a same day Metrolink ticket. Clean and efficient transport.

It's not long, and yes, you could walk but just take the tram! It is a very fun way to go up and down the hill. And the history is very interesting!

Only a buck each way for an iconic historic LA attraction with lovely views from the top! Also just across the road from the Grand Central Market and other area attractions so definitely worth doing!

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

There are plans to re-open, and technically the trains are said to be in working condition. There is, however, a lot of red-tape and insurance issues to cover so it is still doubtful. There is no official date for... More
