Getting Around in Los Angeles
How to Get Around

While Los Angeles does have a subway and bus system, a rental car is the best way to get around the city. LA is a sprawling metropolis with many attractions spread out across the city and public transportation can be time-consuming and unreliable. A car allows visitors to explore and experience different neighborhoods, from Hollywood to Santa Monica, at their own pace and like a local would. Parking can be challenging in some areas, but with a little planning, renting a car is the most convenient and efficient way to navigate Los Angeles.
