Public transport from Disneyland to Universal Studio

Does anyone knows the best route from Disneyland to Universal Studio? There are 5 of us and we are going to Uni Syudio on Sunday morning.

The best option is mainly the train.

From Disneyland, catch the local bus, OCTA Route 43 that goes north on Harbor Boulevard to the Fullerton Train Station.

From there, catch either the Amtrak or the Metrolink to Union Station.

Once you get to Union Station (Downtown LA area) you catch the Metro Red Line (Subway) to the Universal City Station. Once at the station, you cross the street and catch a free shuttle tram to the park.

To elaborate more on DB's post:

after you take the train from Fullerton station to Los Angeles, you will need to take the Red Line subway to Hollywood and alight at the Universal City station. From there you can take a free shuttle up the hill to Universal CityWalk, which is next to Universal Studios. Short walk from CW to the theme park/studio's main entrance.

Second best public transit option is by bus, but it will take longer even if it is cheaper than train.

The bus option entails taking Metro bus 460 (www.metro.net) from Disneyland to the 7th Street Metro Center where you can also get the Red Line subway towards North Hollywood and exit at the Universal City station as above. But the bus option is generally slower.
