Taking the subway’s Red or Purple lines is probably the easiest and most direct way to get to Pershing Square. Both lines stop at the Pershing Square station.
The Blue, Expo, and Gold Lines all link up with the Red and Purple Lines in the Downtown area (the first two at the Seventh Street/Metro Center Station and the third at Union Station). All three routes have numerous park-and-ride lots situated next to stations, so if you don’t live within walking distance of a Metro stop, driving to the train is always an option.
If you’re Downtown already, LADOT’s inexpensive DASH buses provide easy access to Pershing Square. Route B, D, and E all have stops within two blocks of the park. Otherwise, over a dozen Metro bus routes make a stop at Pershing Square, with many others passing nearby. Metro’s mobile app may help make navigating the county’s extensive bus network a bit easier.
Metro’s new Downtown bike share program is finally up-and-running. That will be especially useful if you choose to park near Downtown. Conveniently, there are numerous hubs to borrow and return the bikes between Pershing Square and City Hall.
