There is a Metro station nearby, but parking on prem is $9 and worth it. The only poorly designed aspect is the Handicap parking as there is only one bank of elevators at the far end of the structure away from the Ahmanson, neccessitating anyone wheelchair bound to wheel themselves or be pushed across the parking structure and then all the way back across again once they are on the main level. Very poor planning on someone's part, if there was to be only one set of elevators, they should have been placed in the middle.
