Even during rush hour i can get to Final destination in about 1 1/2 hours from farther point in West Valley. My point being public transportation is not efficient and it will never be.
You're not doing something right. Google shows that as 20 minutes to woodley and 30 minutes to sepulveda.

I would definitely trust google over a metro app! Metro is a transportation company, not a tech company.

For some reason you selected a trip that leaves the orange line and connects to a local bus with 19 stops, then to Ventura Blvd. You selected a trip that requires three buses when I already stated that the sepulveda line would connect to the orange line. You only need one bus - the orange line. Your end point to connect to the sepulveda line should be the Van Nuys orange line station or perhaps the sepulveda orange line station.

LOL..calling LA voters idiots while not knowing the system is funded by sales tax, not property tax.
