    An interesting, hidden part of the city. Walk the stairs then stroll around the plaza on top.

    Get a Metro Tap Card for $1 at Pershing Square station, which is visible from the bottom of Angel's Flight. Put $20 on it and ride all #transit in LA for up to a week - plus, Angel's Flight for $0.25!

    The fare is .50 (one way) But with an active Tap Card, it's .25.

    A one way trip is now 50 cents. It's still cheap.

    It puts the "fun" back in "funicular railway." Ride this relic from 1901 built to ease access to the then-residential Bunker Hill from core downtown below. It's now across from Grand Central Market.

    Whenever another L.A. landmark is torn down or demolished, come here and ride Angel's Flight. It will make you feel better. Just awesome.
