All the Metro lines require a transfer. Any chance there's a more direct way?

Thanks!

I once took 2 metro lines, it took me almost 2 hours to arrive, considering all the time I had to wait. I think that it wasn't the best combination, though. Probably taking the rapid 720 on Wilshire and then something near Downtown will be much faster. Do you need to do this every day?

Check to see if the soon to open Expo line is an efficient for your commute. There will be one station across from USC and another at the West end of the campus. Otherwise, it is a tough public transit or even car commute.

Going between enemy territories (UCLA to USC). What Metro line? If you mean bus, I doubt there is any option not requiring a change. Just having to make one change sounds pretty good to me. I thought only buses. www.metro.net should give you most options. I found 3 bus options, all estimating 30-60 mins. total (but not sure they take rush hour into account).

Check out Commuter Express 431 from Westwood to downtown. (Commuter Express 431 - LADOT Transit Services). Then, you can take the Dash F (about .35 cents) which comes about every 10 minutes during rush hour, or any other bus (about $1-$2) to USC campus.

Most commuter expresses are NICE and SAFE, with people in suits on their laptops, or taking naps.

Otherwise, can you get to MDR or playa vista? USC has a tram that goes to/from MDR and PV. Auxiliary Services | Transportation | Bus Maps & Schedules

i would say take the rapid on wilshire all the way down to vermont ave. Then you take the rapid or the 204 on vermont to usc. its the simplest way if you ask me.

For now (2012) the Metro Rapid down Wilshire Blvd with a transfer south on Vermont does sound like the best option.

In 2016, when the Expo Line Phase II opens, a bus down Westwood Blvd to Exposition Blvd with a transfer to the Expo Light rail will take you all the way to USC.
