Cruise Terminal at San Pedro


Cruising out of LA in March (hopefully staying near the Kodak Theatre) and want to know how we can get to port using public tranport as have been told a taxi ride would be very expensive.

Well, your choices are a taxi, or a Shared Van service such as Prime Time Shuttle or Super Shuttle. San Pedro is in Southern Los Angeles County, and hard to get to by Public Transit. If you don't have much luggage, you could take the LA Metro Blue Line LIght Rail service to Long Beach, and then get a taxi from there to save some money. But I would just go with the Shared Van.

Actually this is not the worst trip to do on public transit provided you don't have too much luggage. You'd use the red line subway (station is right next to the Kodak Theater) and take the subway to the 7th St. Metro Center station. Exit the station which will put you at the intersection of 7th St. and Flower St. From here you can take Metro Bus 450 towards San Pedro, and exit on Beacon St. This will leave you with a walk of a little under 1/4 mile to the cruise terminal. The cost will be around $5 per person. and Google estimates the transit time at 1 hr 20 minutes. www.metro.net for info on the Red Line subway and bus 450.

Otherwise, a shared van service mentioned above is the going to be the best combination of convenience, transit time, and cost. From the Hollwood area to the San Pedro cruise terminal these companies charge about $50 for the first passenger and $10 for each additional passenger. The downside is that the vans can detour along the way to pick up or drop off other passengers, so they won't be as fast as a taxi, most likely. www.primetimeshuttle.com or www.supershuttle.com

Finally, a taxi, will likely be about $100 + tip.
