WHAT TO DO

Ride the Red Line from North Hollywood (NoHo) to Union Station. There are ticket machines at every station. First buy a TAP card, which looks like a credit card and costs $1. The machine prompts you to add value to the card. For $5, you can purchase an all-day ticket ($1.80 for seniors.) It’s worth getting an all-day ticket if you’re going to use the Red Line as a multi-site art gallery.
