You can send an email to zippyshuttle.net and they will tell you how much their 'car service' will cost. Taxi fares are usually not fixed so you're paying for each mile that you travel and for each minute of 'waiting time' (when the taxi is standing at a red light or in traffic). As long as you're traveling during a 'low traffic period' (midday during the week or, on the weekend but excluding Sun from 4 pm to 9 pm), a taxi is likely to be a little bit less expensive than a 'car service'. During 'rush hours', the car service will be the same or a little bit less expensive (although the car is likely to be a little nicer than most taxis).

Try a car service or a shared van service (www.supershuttle.com or www.primetimehuttle.com) first. A taxi ride is, basically, about $3.00 per mile if traffic is normal (at best its about $2.70 per mile if traffic is great, but more than $3.00 per mile if traffic is awful). SNA to LA Live is about 44 miles, so it would not be an inexpensive taxi ride.

An option would be iShuttle from SNA to Tustin Metrolink station. Take the train to LA Union Station. At Union Station transfer to the Blue Line (?) for a few stops to LA Live.

DeLee's got it almost right. From Union Station, transfer to the red line to 7th St/Metro Center station and from there, either transfer to the blue line 1 stop or simply walk to Staples from 7th street station.
