Public Transportation

No Car? No Problem! 

If you don't have a car here on campus, there are still plenty of ways for you to get off campus. Even if are going somewhere outside of the Lion Express routes, you have options.

1.  Ride the Lion Express.  
We can easily transport you to any of our stops during our normal operating hours, which offer a wide variety of shops, restaurants, and scenic locations such as the beach!

2. Take the Bus  
The bus is an affordable, reliable method of transportation.  Los Angeles MTA offers a trip planner to help you find your way to many locations around the LA Metro area.  http://www.metro.net/
