Do You Need a Car in Los Angeles?

The City of Los Angeles is an undeniably beautiful, sprawling city that is second in terms of population only to New York City. LA is a popular destination, and if you live here, you are well acquainted with its nearly year-round perfection in terms of weather. What LA is not, however, is a great place to get around without a car. If the car you rely on to make your home in LA ends up being a lemon, don’t wait to consult with an experienced LA lemon law attorney

Mass Transit in LA

While NYC and Chicago have mass transit down tight, LA is a different animal. The city is crisscrossed by immense road systems with no comprehensive response in terms of mass transit. While it is possible to get around with the mass transit that is on offer – coupled with rideshare activity – it isn’t going to be easy. There are two primary forms of mass transit in LA. 


The primary means of public transportation throughout LA is the massive bus system run by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA). While the bus system is complicated at best, it goes just about everywhere – with a bus stop on nearly every street – and the following can help you keep things organized:

  • Express buses are the blue ones (locally referred to as the big blue bus)
  • Rapid metro line buses are red. 
  • Local buses are orange. 

It is estimated that about 1.3 million passengers travel LA bus routes each weekday, and the price is surprisingly affordable. All told, bus travel around LA is considered a fairly reliable way to get around. 

Metro Rail

The Los Angeles light rail transit system (Los Angeles Metro Rail) got a late start (in 1990), which means it has a ways to go in order to keep up with the major players like NYC and Chicago. There are two primary lines – the Metro Red Line (providing service between Downtown LA and North Hollywood) and the Metro Blue Line (providing service between Downtown LA and Downtown Long Beach) – and the cost is, again, relatively inexpensive (in relation to other major cities). 

Getting Around

Of all the major cities in the United States, LA is the one most likely to require a car in order to live your life to the fullest. The primary reasons for needing a car in Los Angeles include:

  • Unless you work from home or live very close to work, your commute can be a real challenge. 
  • Making the most of everything that LA has on tap can be next to impossible without a car. 
  • There are certain places throughout LA that you simply can’t get to in a reasonable amount of time without a car.

"Pleased with the Service"

Happy to hear from you. I was very pleased with the service you provided. I couldn’t be happier. The timing was excellent. I retired June 1st and didn’t really need the car anymore. I didn’t go out and buy another car. I decided to hang on to my money for a while.


“Great Help and Great Service”

Valerie did a fantastic job handling my lawsuit. She was in constant contact with me, she was honest and kept me informed every step of the way. I appreciate her great help and her great service and I would definitely use her again and recommend her to anybody out there that needs help.


"Beyond Satisfied"

I am beyond satisfied. After being told that I did not have a case by other attorneys, I was referred to Ms. Campbell and I am so glad I called her. During the initial consultation, Ms. Campbell was very thorough and answered all of my concerns. She assured me that this was not an overnight fix, however, it took less than three (3) months to resolve. Ms. Campbell was available every step of the way. I rarely called or emailed her because she always kept me in the loop. Every case is different but I am glad mine was quick and painless. I would recommend LemonLaw123 to anyone without any reservations. I could not have asked for better representation. Thank you!!!!
