How to Get into Los Angeles using Metro Rail and then on to Azusa Pacific University and Conference 2017!

Getting into town from LAX via Metro Rail is very inexpensive, but it does require a ride on a shuttle bus and changing to one train.

• Metro Rail does not run 24 hours. The last train that will get you into downtown L.A. leaves Aviation/LAX Station at 12:03 am on weekdays. On Friday and Saturday nights, there are late night trains that run till 2:12am. The first train of the day from Aviation/LAX Station is at 3:59am.


How to Get into Los Angeles from LAX using FlyAway Bus

LAX FlyAway Bus (1-866-435-9529)

Exit your terminal and cross to the center median. Look above your head for the sign reading “FlyAway, Buses and Long Distance Vans” — it will be Green. Board the blue FlyAway bus bound for Union Station in downtown LA. The one-way fare is $9.75. They do not collect the fare until you reach Union Station. Children up to 5 ride for free. The bus runs every half hour, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The trip to Union Station takes 30-50 minutes, depending on traffic.

You will arrive at Bay 9 at the Patsaouras Transit Plaza, just behind Union Station. You will stop at the Kiosk as you exit the bus and pay for your ride on the Flyaway. Walk down the stairs or ramp into the domed atrium. We are looking for the Gold Line; that is the train that will take you all the way to the end of the tracks and our destination: Azusa Pacific University. To reach the Gold Line, walk straight into the tunnel until you reach Tracks 1 and 2. Once you locate the Gold Line you need to stop at the Kiosk at the bottom of the stairs to your right. You must purchase a “Tap” card for $1.00 and a one-way fare for $1.75 to ride the train. The “Tap” card is re-usable and you can load additional fares for any train/ Metro travel you wish to do while in CA. As you go up the stairs tap your “Tap” card on the pedestal station and go to the top of the stairs and await the train heading towards Pasadena, Altadena, and the final destination of Azusa Pacific/Citrus College. The ride will take about 45 minutes.

Union Station is still one of the premiere train stations in the country, servicing three separate railway systems: Metro Rail, Metrolink, and Amtrak.

Union Station is an attraction in itself — a cavernous, ornate Art Deco masterwork that’ll make you wish it were the 1940’s and you were about to blow town on a sleeper train to Chicago.


Take the train to the end and debark. The Campus is approximately ¼ mile walk from the train station.

Looking forward to seeing you at Conference 2017!
