Living in Los Angeles

A better Los Angeles is emerging from a city that was built for cars. Investments in light rail, express bus lines, and redeveloped neighborhoods are paying off. The LA Metro is a mix of transit with express lines serving downtown and LAX. And there’s gorgeous art deco Union Station, a hub for rail travel.

Downtown is the center for most of the city’s transit, but Westwood, Hollywood, and Koreatown have the urban density that make for walkable living. It’s still LA, so your best bet is to live close to work, but even if you commute, your home can be in a walking friendly neighborhood.
