1.4 miles to the north or south? Makes a difference. South is pretty much industrial, north could get dicey. Might be better to transfer to the 210 bus at Crenshaw.

The trains get crowded and the main problem is the riders are stupid and cluster around the doors and don't get out of your way to let you get to the bike section or into the right side doorway so you can stay out of everyone's way as they get on and off.
The light rail in Denver is similar too this when busy. People congregate in the doors and even sit in the little step-well, and don't get the concept of moving INTO the middle of the car of they have more than a stop or two.

They permit two bikes per end on each car. I simple politely ask them to move inside the car so I can lean my bike against the end wall.

I have used the Purple Line when I have visited L.A. and found it to be efficient and safe during the day.

As for the issue of people congregating in the doorway areas of the trains that happens all the time in the NYC subway system instead moving into the middle of the cars. It seems to be human nature.

It would be to the south. Work is on Jack Northrup drive.

Then walking shouldn't be a problem. Getting of the train, you would pass by the small park-n-ride lot, then cross 120th St, then you'll pass by runway 25 of Hawthorne Airport, then a few buildings and you're at Northrup Dr. In the winter months, it will be dark at 6 AM, but you would probably be in more danger of being hit by a car than being robbed or attacked. Good luck!
