I'm contemplating gong to Universal Studio's on one of my next trips to Disneyland, and I'm thinking about using Metro Link. I do know where the Station is in Fullerton, north on Harbor. And I've heard of another location on Harbor?
My quest is to use Metro Link to travel to Universal Studios. Is there a stop within reasonable distance to Citywalk/Universal? Would I need to switch trains? I would also like to make a stop at the Hollywood/Highland location. It does look like that stop is on the same route to Universal. Is that correct?
According to the web site, you purchase your ticket from a vending machine. What is the charge for a daily pass/ or round trip pass? Do the machines accept $20 bills, take credit cards. I tried checking out info online, but just couldn't find some of these details, and figured someone on the boards here might have a little more info.
I don't know if they still offer those free rides if you purchase your tickets at the location across the street from HoJo's, BUT with those you are usually more limited in what time you leave and come back, and your time is limited. (I once took a tour bus that drove us up there, and I'm NOT doing that again) Figured the Metro Link would give quite a bit more freedom on travel times. And it would be so nice to avoid driving 5 and 101 in the midst of rush hour, so with high gas prices, Metro Link certainly looks like a pretty good option.
omg, a what bunch of geeky questions, but I want to feel a little more comfortable and hear some first hand reports, to up my comfort level. We have had a few topics previously about Metro Link, but most of those are more than a year old, so I figured time for an update. I'm sure a few people will benefit from this info, to as summer has just begun.
Also, how frequently do the trains run? What hours do they run? What is the cost?
