To start off, you can take a LA Metro Bus or a Metro Bike to travel throughout Downtown Los Angeles. If you choose to drive, there is plenty of public parking lots where you can pay a small fee and leave your car for the entire day. They are convenient because finding available street parking can be a challenge.

Metro Bikes are $1.75 per 30 minutes. Five dollar day passes are also available.
