Can I Live in Los Alamitos and Commute to Los Angeles?

Los Alamitos, one of Orange County’s first true suburbs is known for its small-town, Mayberry-like feel. The community is clean and safe, and its residents pride themselves on maintaining some of the best schools in the county. What’s more, it’s less than 30 miles from Los Angeles, making it the perfect place to settle down with the family while still being able to work in the big city. In fact, according to Rome2rio, when it comes to commuting to L.A. from Los Alamitos, you have multiple options to choose from. Let’s take a look.

How Can I Get From Los Alamitos to Los Angeles?

Even though Los Alamitos only has a population of just over 11,500, it’s in a prime location when it comes to transportation options. In fact, if you live in Los Alamitos and want to commute to Los Angeles, you have five options (six, rather, if you consider getting there by a combination of these options): by car, taxi, tram, bus, or train. Unsurprisingly, an estimated 83% of working residents commute to jobs outside of Los Alamitos.

How Long Does It Take to Get From Los Alamitos to Los Angeles?

Depending on your mode of transportation and the traffic, the 23.2 miles between Los Alamitos and Los Angeles could take anywhere from around 30 minutes to 2.5 hours. For example, driving in a car or taxi will likely give you the most direct route, so that trip may only be around 30 minutes long. If you take the bus, however, you have to consider other factors, such as a transfer that takes nearly 40 minutes.

What’s the Best Way to Get From Los Alamitos to Los Angeles?

What’s best for you may not be best for someone else. Do you own a car? That may be the best option for you, as it’s likely the quickest way, depending on traffic. Are you concerned about costs? Without a car, a bus ticket is certainly the cheapest way to go. Do you prefer to digest the latest news or get caught up on last-minute emails on the way to the office? The tram may be best for that.

Here’s the full breakdown from Rome2rio as of March 2021:

    • Duration: 47 minutes
