Best way to reach Union Station from LAX airport

by magic_jersey

Hi,

Is the Union Station the right place to be to catch a bus or train going to San Diego?

But how to go to Union coming from LAX airport?

Do I have to book in advance for the San Diego trip?

Thanks.

You catch trains at Union Station. Buses are elsewhere, depending on the line, although most are around Downtown. Greyhound is not particularly close though.
Fastest public transit route from LAX to Union Station is the FlyAway bus: http://www.lawa.org/flyaway/.
You can take the Metro rail also, but it takes a lot longer. http://www.metro.net/
It's better to book a train ticket a few days in advance, at least. They can either fill up or the fares can go up.

Piece of cake, easy as pie, no problem. Take the LAX FlyAway Bus: see their webpage pamphlet:

Oops! Sorry again Colin. I guess I should make sure I read the answer section before answering.


Marites, the train from Union Station to San Diego departs all day long starting early until late afternoon. It will stop right in Downtown San Diego.

.....and just for the sake of completeness, the taxi fare from the airport to downtown L.A. (Union Station), is fixed at $43.00.....

Re: Best way to reach Union Station from LAX airport

by travelgourmet

LAXFlyAway Bus to Union Station: $7.00. Train ride from Union Station to San Diego, downtown is $30.00. The difference between taxi and FlyAway bus is a train ticket and refreshment on the train.

Learn about L.A. personality from area codes: 213

by marinarena

What's in an area code: personality (if you are in southern California) !

Once upon a time, well in mid-20th century to be more precise, all of L.A. county was under one area code for telephone-- 213. Nowaways because of ridiculous population growth and the cell phone craze, the county has ....oh, I have to count....a whomping 7 individual codes with a very likely "..and counting".

With all of the additions through the years come a kind of wickedly fun humor that comes from area code identification or personification.

Nowaways, the 213 is not as strong an identity as others. This is partly because it is hard to define a distinct personality to the loosely connect parts that it represents. Mainly, the 213 covers parts of downtown (but not the entire heart of the city) and communities like Wilshire (Center), Koreatown, Mid-City, West Adams and others that I still do not know so well.

With "213" I give an example of how a local may refer to it:

Ex: "That guy- he's an original, like the 213"

213 invokes originality and with this, a kind of realness that commends admiration and respect, like a mother. All of L.A. all began with her

So, just like in a name, there is everything in an area code- not just the numbers themselves!

(More talk of area codes are found in these local custom tips)
