I live in Valley Village, but work in downtown Burbank. Now the only school offering the classes I need for my requirements is West LA College in Culver City.

The classes meet at 6-10 Mon and Thursday.

I get off if work at 5pm. Is it even possible to make it to Culver City by 6?

Actually these specific courses are taught in Koreatown. So I wont be going to Culver City.

So, could I make it to Koreatown from downtown Burbank in an hour, 5-6pm,Mon and Thurs?

Would I have to ask my work to let me out early and if so, how early?

Where specifically in Burbank is the start point?

Magnolia St. and Victory right near downtown Burbank.

I am trying to get to Wilshire and Western near Koreatown. It's right off the metro station.

Is it possible to make it in an hour? The earliest my boss will let me out is 4:30.

Probably.... Take the Metrolink from the DT Burbank stop and transfer to the Purple Line: http://goo.gl/maps/I4Gh

Google says an hour if you leave at 4:30. Just make sure you know the Metrolink schedule cause I'm sure they run infrequently - the good news is two lines use the station so it is probably one of the highest frequency lines in the metro.

If you're driving it's definitely doable IF you don't run into traffic for evening Dodger Games on the Hollywood Fwy southbound. Otherwise if you have to resort to surface streets like Cahuenga down you'll be cutting it real close for a 6pm class, once you factor in parking & walking.

If you drive, you are definitely going to end up missing a couple classes due to traffic, or at least be pretty late a few times. I would just stick with the easier and more reliable Metrolink/Purple Line route - plus you can do classwork or reading while you travel. (It is 32 minutes in traffic right now, on a Saturday morning, and an hour on the train.)

There's a metro in downtown Burbank? I can take the subway there? Amazing.

I was planning on driving but if I can get there faster on the metro then that's better.

Not sure if you can retitled your post, but it's obviously misleading since you're not going to Culver City.

www.metro.net (using the intersections you gave on their trip planner), says you could leave the Burbank Metrolink station at 201 Front St. at 5 p.m. and get to Wilshire and Western Metro Rail station at 5:44. Return trip would presumably be after Metrolink hours, so you'd have to take a combination of Metro Rail and bus or all bus. Use the Web site's trip planner.

Metro Rail subway goes to Universal City Station but not Burbank. Just buses and Metrolink (to take you to Union Station). Metrolink has its own Web site at Welcome to Metrolink, but the Metro.net site (for general public transportation in L.A. County) includes those trains at options.

The good news is the OP lives in Valley Village, so the commute home is not terrible.

Sorry for the confusion. The school is in Culver City but the specific classes I'm taking are in Koreatown.

So I take the Burbank metro link to Universal City and then hop on the purple line? Is that right?
