Getting down to the beach from the valley just got so much easier. The Department of Public Works, Beach Bus changed to year-round service from the valley! The price for a 1-way ticket is $1 per person.
There are several routes in Los Angeles but for the valley the starting pick up point is located at Warner Center Station (Oxnard and Owensmouth, NW corner).
A few of their guidelines: Children under 12 years old need to be accompanied by a fare paying adult. Coolers, beach chairs, blankets and boogie boards are allowed, however, no pets unless they are service dogs. Please bring proper ID for senior discount. This service runs 7 days a week.
