Covina Metrolink station to Hollywood and Heighland,

Anyone knows how long the metro takes from Covina to Union station, changing trains and continue to Hollywood and Highland?

Also how often do the trains leave the respected stations?

Thank you

It's 40 min from Covina to Union Station ($7.50) , keep the same ticket as you can use it to ride the Red Line metro which takes 20 mins from Union to Hollywood Highland.

For times go to www.metro.net and use the Trip Planner going from "Covina Station" to "Hollywood Highland Station"

Thank you very much. I have anew job in this area and driving by car is crazy. and finding parking almost impossible. Is there something like a monthly ticket or do I have to pay $7.50 x 2 every day? Don't laugh, I have not used public transportation since we moved to Covina, back in 1993.

Again thank you for the information.

Familiarize yourself with the Metrolinktrains.com website.

On that website, you'll find schedules and info about fares and passes.

The Red Line between Union Station and Hollywood / Highland is about 25 minutes of actual transit time. The train runs every 12 minutes so average wait for the train will be 6 minutes. Note that the Purple Line and the Red Line at Union Station share the same platform, so be sure to board the train towards North Hollywood and not the train towards Wilshire / Western.

Here is the link you want.

If your company is a large one, they may belong already or they may even subsidize it. One of my sons who lives in Los Feliz works in Downtown LA and his company pays for the monthly passes of employees (and in turn gets several tax breaks for doing so in addition to deducting the expense).
