Mass transit in L.A. - It exists! And it includes a comprehensive bus system serving most major streets and a clean subway running from downtown through Hollywood and into the San Fernando Valley. Light-rail lines connect downtown with Pasadena and Long Beach, too. A Day Pass for all these options is just $7; call Metro at 1-800-COMMUTE or visit www.mta.net for more info.

Burbank/Glendale/Pasadena Airport) or Long Beach Airport instead, both of which are easy to get in and out of quickly. SuperShuttle (www.supershuttle.com) and Xpress Shuttle (www.xpressshuttle.com) both have service from these airports to downtown L.A.
