Los Angeles AFB RideShare & Parking programs

Let's face it: You're not in Kansas any more! For that matter, you're not in "The Big Apple" (New York City), "Beantown" (Boston), or "Foggy Bottom" (Washington, D.C.) either with their well-established mass transit systems.

You're in L.A., the "Car-obsessed Capital of the World," aka Freeway Central, where the SoCal locals have a saying: "Anything under three hours is considered a commute." 



So, what can you do if you're low on fuel and Pay Day is a week away -- or worse, you have no wheels at all to get around town? Check out the answers below.  

Traffic Tips & Commuter Hints

Traffic in Southern California can be daunting -- just ask anyone who's driven the 405 or any other numbered SoCal freewaysystem during the morning or evening rush hour.

Since Los Angeles AFBis the only active military installation remaining in the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area, many personnel commute from base housing at Fort MacArthur in San Pedro. That's a trip of18.8 miles thatcan take more than 30 minutes, one-way.

Many other dedicated road warriors commute from as far away as the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys in the north, Malibu andSimi Valleyto the west, San Bernardino and Riverside to the eastor Long Beach and Costa Mesa to the south. Alternate methods of transportation to and from work are recommended to lower costs for your vehicle, lower congestion on the roads and lower stress for you.

Therefore,in partnership with the Department of Transportation, Los Angeles AFBadministers aMass Transportation Benefit Programcalled TRANServe to help offset the costs of using mass transit and other transportation alternatives. TheLos Angeles AFB RideShareprogram offers three options for you to take advantage of:Mass Transit,VanpoolandCarpool.

MASS TRANSIT:
Los Angeles and Southern California is crisscrossed with a myriad of mass transit options:

Beach Cities Transit
City of ElSegundo Transportation Service
City of Gardena Municipal Bus Line
City of San Pedro DASH
LADOT Transit Commuter Express

Santa Monica Big Blue Bus
Torrance Transit

The "Big Kahuna" of them all is theLos Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, otherwise known asMetro,whichdirectly operates bus, light rail, heavy rail, and bus rapid transit services within Los Angeles County. This includes:

MetroLinkfor intra-city travel
MetroRailfor inter-city transportation

For travelto and from the Los Angeles AFB area, tryMetro Bus,Metro LightRail(Blue,Red,Green,Gold,PurpleandExpolines), orMetro TransitwayOrangeandSilverlines.

VANPOOL:
The vanpool system is a series of privately-leased mini- and full-sizedvans with routes servicing Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura counties, as well as the westernmost portions ofSan Bernardino and Riverside counties. Our vanpool vehicles and lease agreements are administered byEnterprise RideshareandvRide. Locating a vanpool is easy; just contact the Los Angeles AFB RideShare office, or check theInsideSMCelectronic bulletin board. You can also contact either the Enterprise or vRide account representatives for more information.

CARPOOL:
Los Angeles AFB'scarpool system is less formal but no less useful. Roommates and co-workers that ride together may receive a carpool pass that will allow them to park on basewithin designated carpool parking spaces; a nice perk that puts the vehicle occupants closer to their work.
