Very Impresdive
Jul 2021 • Solo
The Metrolink is very clean and spacious. Someone really took the time to think and plan the ADA aspect of the trains. The first time ever in the world I saw by design the cars had an accessible restroom, outlets and four wheelchair spaces and a designated specially designed entrance. I am really impressed and the announcements, color monitors and attendant made the entire experience extremely gratifying. NYC can learn a thing or two. Every stop was beautifully kept and clean. The $10 weekend round-trip special was indeed special.

Metro is Awsome
Jun 2021
Many people do not think that there is a subway in Los Angeles. There is more than a subway. The Metro is an inexpensive way to visit anywhere in Southern California. It will get you around Los Angeles and also take you to places like San Diego and Santa Barbara. Even though we are "fully open" I suggest you wear a mask when riding.

Be safe and have fun in L.A,

More Convenient for me when Traveling to LA
Jun 2021 • Solo
I’ve been visiting LA a few times now and it's always more convenient for me to take public transportation like the Metro Rail.. It consists of six lines that will take you to the tourist attractions and best parks of LA.

The stations are very dirty. Filthy place. Perhaps due to many people with no home who call the stations home. Real loud as well.

This is Not Tokyo

Unfortunately, homeless people linger around many of the train stations, particularly on the Red Line Subway. Elevators often times smell like urine. It's a turn off for the working public who tries to use this system daily for their commuting.

Easy way around LA
Feb 2020
We used the metro on our first visit to LA. it was easy to use/navigate around, cheap for us as we all bought day passes which we could also use on the buses as well. The carriages were clean and there were a few comical moments. As tourists we would use this again.

The LA transport system, like many public transport systems in the US is absolutely flawed. I do not know where to begin. Miraculously the Metro does allow you to purchase passes for your Tap card online. Unfortunately, the passes sometimes don't work for up to 3 days... so if you want to get the bus down the road then you may need to plan 72 hours in advance if you're not buying on board. Secondly, we opted to purchase 1 day passes at the cost of $7 as we were informed, and later found out, that the arrival times of many buses are so unpredictable that you're better of covering yourself for the day rather than buying a one way pass where you may not make a simple journey within the time frame... Thirdly, the buses and train were not clean, nor did they seem safe at all. Despite having gates to metro stations, there were many homeless people on the platforms and boarding the trains, walking up and down asking for money. Both the trains and buses smelt awful as well. If LA wasn't so big then I probably would've just paid the price for Uber or Lyft, however I feel like you're forced to take public transport on a limited budget.

Easy way Around Los Angeles
Jan 2020
Looking for a great way to get around LA and other areas. The metro rail is great. Connecting you to other trains and rail lines, the gold line is the best method of transportation to keep you moving and out of the LA traffic. Very affordable, safe and very well maintained as far as cleanliness.

Easy but old

The metro is easy to get at.
Just load your card and go $1,75 for a single ride or buy a day card. The metro and trains/wagons are old and out of date.

We travelled from Hollywood / Highland to 7th street Downtown station, the signs were easy to understand the service great and the murals marvellous, clean as well, or only experience was spot-on.
