You literally can put in two different cities such as Rome, Italy and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and see your transportation options. We’re not looking to take a trip of that magnitude. We just want to get from downtown Los Angeles to Sun Valley. As we’ve written many times before Sun Valley has easy access to a number of freeways, making the trip to anywhere in Southern California pretty easy. But automobiles are not the only modes of transport available to us.
One of the benefits of living in Sun Valley is that we have our own Metrolink stop (located at 8360 San Fernando Rd.) so it’s a snap to hop on the Metrolink train and take it into downtown Los Angeles at Union Station. Union Station is the hub for not only Metrolink trains but the underground subway, the Metro, as well as aboveground train lines such as the red line. All these options means it’s possible to get around Southern California from Long Beach to the Inland Empire without having to use an automobile.
