The Big Parade Los Angeles is an annual, two-day walk that happens every May. It includes about 80 public stairways and spans over 35 miles from Downtown L.A. to the Griffith Observatory. The walk runs on a timetable and is designed as a series of attached loops, so people can come and go as they please. The location is broadcast live so that walkers can follow along or join at will. Along the way, there’s music, art, history, guest speakers and lots of surprises. The Big Parade and the practice walks are free.

The Metro Trip Planner is a great tool to use when planning your way around Los Angeles. The tool generates detailed instructions on how to get to and from your destination. You can also download the Go Metro Los Angeles mobile app to help you get around the city while you're on the go.

All transit rates start at a base fare of $1.75. In addition to a single-ride fare, options include the Metro Day Pass ($7) and the 7-Day Pass ($25). On the Metro Rail and the Metro Orange Line, single-ride fares, passes and stored value must be loaded on a Metro TAP card. TAP is a durable plastic card that you can use again and again. Buy and add value to a reusable TAP card from TAP vending machines located at Metro Rail or Metro Orange Line stations.The TAP card allows you to add money and/or choose from a daily, weekly, or monthly pass to add to your card. Buying a pass is often less expensive than the base fare price per ride.
