The remarks about LADOT are so silly. Professors, Drs and Lawyers use the Commuter express. The free parking lot in Encino in a really nice place with even security take students daily to UCLA non stop faster than you can drive every 15m M-F. The Lawyers ride after the UCLA to Century City.

Two UCLA Professors get on and off my 423 connection at Malibu Canyon. At Topanga USC Professors and USC Students get on the 423 for its drop off at USC.

Vans, I road and are limiting because they leave both ways at "one" time daily exactly! So you are left if you miss that exact timepoint and end up coming and going on someone elses schedule not yours. Your are always concern what time is it. The Commuter Express (4 hours in) and (4 hours of out) every 15 minutes and is much nicer ride.

Living there is the best for sure yet that is I guess not a financial option, Those that do live and come home ride one of the many commuter systems on the weekend as parking is a real pain.

When I lived in LA, Metrolink went to Oxnard. I would look into the train.

I recommend using a time machine, since this thread is almost a decade old.

Ladot is the only option if you dont have money to live on or near campus. Encino park and ride is the last 573 and it first stop is campus. Parking is free there and faster than driving from there because it takes the new carpool lane and cuts on the 101 last minute. Half the bus gets off at campus. Other half are Century City suits. It goes every 15 minites. Teachers and staff ride daily as the ticket booth gives you a discounted pass. If you cant get to Encino Park and Ride the USC bus 423 will take you to encino. If you move to a mission hills to encino if money is tight just take the 573. So many students commute its silly, pch up sunset is the 2. If you have the money live at school and commute home as you will have 3 or 4 day schedules? If not be smart. The bus is not late yet driving and paying parking in over sold lots will cost more than living there. You can study, sleep and wifi on the extra nice Commuter Express so as for driving its a no brainer. Good luck.

Interesting. This thread lay dormant from August, 2007 to April, 2015, nearly 8 years. Judging by the posts from then to now, it seems that public transportation in Thousand Oaks has evolved during the thread's dormancy. In 2007, "Uber" was an adjective; now it's a proper noun.
