Welcome to LA, The City of Angels! Like most visitors to Los Angeles, you may find yourself standing in LAX thinking to yourself "How the heck do I get out of here?". At most airports, in most cities, you just walk over and rent a car, but LAX is not most airports and is far from most cities! In Los Angeles at any given time there are more cars than there are people, so maybe renting one and adding another car to that mess of traffic out there is not the best idea.
So, you may still be thinking "How the heck do I get out of here?!" No need to fret, LAX conveniently offers public transportation and you can find all the public transformation information you need online.
However, if riding in one of these isn't quite your style then there is good news, there are other options.
If you are like many people you may have a distaste for buses and the crowds that accompany them, you can alternatively ride a bit more luxuriously in a ride like this,
Escalades and some even more luxurious options are available from LAX Car Service options which are a-plenty in such a star-studded city. Using LAX's car services make you feel like a celebrity as you pull away from the airport in a black Escalade and, conveniently for the public, competition from ride share apps makes this service surprisingly affordable.
So, you're finally out of the airport, you may be thinking to yourself "How the heck do I get anywhere?"
Again, no need to fret. This is the City of Angels and multiple modes of transportation. If you want to sightsee and get around at the same time you can check out a trolley tour as well to get a unique view of the city.
If a trolley sound a bit too boring but you still want to see the sights, then you can test out your balance on a Segway tour.
If these modes of transportation sound too touristy for you then you can always travel like the locals and check out the Metro Rail System here on their website. https://www.metro.net/riding/maps/
If you really feel like living the Los Angeles lifestyle you can get sweat out the daily commute just like Los Angolanas by renting a bike and taking advantage of their bike lanes and biking laws. There are plenty of options out there, so check them all out online and make the best decision for your needs!
Los Angeles is a beautiful and thriving city but along with that obviously comes with a lot of people, so thinking ahead and planning your transportation saves you a huge headache and can make your trip that much more enjoyable.
One last point of transportation that typically gets overlooked is getting back to the airport at the end of the trip. Luckily for you, the traveler, that luxurious car you left the airport in will also come and pick you up to take you back. The size of these vehicles is even more convenient on the way back to the airport since you are likely struggling to fit all of those "I Love LA" t-shirts into your already full suitcase.
