  • It is great that Angles Flight is running again and taking passengers for a ride on the shortest train ride in the USA. It only costs $1.00 per person each way (seniors is $.50) a bargen for a piece o...  more »
  • Tram excessively short and useless. Certainly the train is old and pretty in a skyscraper environment but the neighborhood is uninteresting, the connection useless. Too bad to highlight this attraction that offers nothing, all for the price of $1 the climb and $1 per descent!!! The film Lalaland highlights it but don't go, you'll be disappointed!!!

  • Super cool experience, $2 round trip. Definitely beats taking the stairs when you have kids. If you have time, you should definitely stick around upstairs and explore the shops. You pay at the top, which was a little confusing
  • One of the only landmarks in Los Angeles. It's a short ride going up to a concert stage/sitting area for the offices around there and down to the Grand Central Market area. It's $1 for each way. It's definitely a nice experience for only $1 and you get to be a true Angelino!
  • This is LA history at it's best. It's been restored beautifully. As of 03/2019, at $1 a ride or 50 cents with a tap card it's a great way to experience a piece of LAs yesteryears. Don't forget to take a look at the views from the top of this short ride and grab lunch at Grand Central Market across the street.
  • The ride cost just a few dollars to ride. Came across this thing when visiting the market and we was already on our way to the US bank tower. We saw we could ride this up the hill and we definitely did. It was fun. Something to definitely do when visiting the downtown LA area.
  • This is historic icon in downtown Los Angeles just right in front of the farmers market where you can have a variety of good food. Although it’s understandable to charge a fee, I think it should be free or just request for a donation. The fee is “steep” for the short flight. Look around other big cities, they don’t charge for their people movers.
