Of course the buses are safe ! I ride the buses/trains more often than many of you EVER will. Such questions (is the bus safe in the daytime) are so silly and inane, that they deserved to be answered as such (in this instance, sarcasm). I mean seriously, you couldn't see the sarcasm? Who would ever realistically answer a question like that?

And I NEVER exaggerate anything about this city. If you knew anything about me, you'd know that I've always had a deep love for my city and its people, something illustrated my blog.And for the umteenth time, the "hate LA" thing is called being facetious. I swear, some people can't take a joke. LA doesn't "suck". That title is only there to essentially mock (think in a satirical fashion) the usual anti-LA banter and diatribe that is oh so common on these forums.

I enjoy and cherish LA--but know it well enough to know to address its flaws. Why would I "waste" time in a city I "loathe" ? Doesn't make much sense, does it?

Re: OP's question. Kleck, you have nothing to worry about. The vast majority of the bus routes on major corridors run on decent intervals (<15min day wide, 2-5min rush hour), and run new, 60ft articulated buses with lots of CCTV. Even better is that most of these routes have Rapid buses, with are limited stop buses that run more often and have bells and whistles such as signal priority. The trains are even safer, running on fixed schedules and staffed with sheriffs/metro officers.


I Am sorry God should of put an emoticon to better understand your sarcasum. Like this

When I lived in LA between 1977 and 1987 there was only the bus. it cost around 75 cents to ride one way unless you had a bus pass. What is it now? How much it is for the train and subway?

I am planning on looking for an apartment near the Grove shopping Center and the Farmers' Market. Are there subway and train connections near there? There are probably bus lines in the area. I remember ever few years the bus drivers would go on strike. Do they still do this? Thanks for any help.
