Planning on traveling with a 5 year old and 6 months old (in a troller) carrying two carry-on luggages. Will we be able to board the metro lines to get from LAX airport to DTLA?

If you are going to downtown LA and want to take public transportation, I'd reccommend taking the LAX Flyaway bus to Union Station. It's faster than the trains, and way less sketchy. It is, however, a little more expensive, but still probably cheaper than a lyft. Changing trains at the Rosa Parks Station (where the Green and Blue lines meet near Watts) is not something I recommend with children. The Green and especially Blue lines themselves also tend to be a little sketch.

Normally it’s not that bad but the main interchange station between the blue and green is closed until Sept due to reconstruction. This means transferring to a bus. In the meantime take the Flyaway to Union Station which connects to Metro, Metrolink and Amtrak.

The Blue line is under renovation and closed in sections. Check Metro's website for information about the closures which is for most of 2019.

The blue line is horribly ghetto, going directly through Los Angeles worst part of town. Avoid.

Oh yeah, forgot aboit the blue line closures. So, there isn't really an option until the Blue line re-opens in Sept if things are on schedule.

Great idea! Add more cars to the traffic gridlock around LAX.

Correction give employment to someone who's already working, and send a few more dollars to silicon valley.

That will happen regardless. People do not take public transportation if they can avoid it in LA.
