Duderinos,  If you find yourself in North Hollywood for whatever reason and looking for a cheap way to get out, consider this: Metro Red Line. It is a relatively new and expanding form of public transportation, that is finally connecting the sprawling landscape that is Los Angeles. As of today October 2011, you can purchase a day pass for $5.00. It is Located on Lankershim blvd and Chandler.      
     Keep this in mind about the North Hollywood Red Line Station:
1.  It is underground.
2.  At the North Hollywood station, it is either the end of the line or the take off point heading to UNION STATION in downtown L.A.
     So even though there are two rails and sometimes two trains.  It will only go in one direction at this point. If a train has just arrived and people are evacuating and some are hoping on, regardless of the train track passengers have either: reached the end of the red line going North into the San Fernando Valley, or are about to go South to the Los Angeles Union Station allowing you to get off at any one of its 12 vastly interesting red line stations stops. All stops have signs above the previously mentioned two rails pointing out their destinations: either UNION STATION in DOWNTOWN, or back to NORTH HOLLYWOOD, in the SAN FERNANDO VALLEY. At this point you may transfer using your day pass on most public buses to get to: China Town/Olvera Street, Staples Center, Santa Monica Beaches, Long Beach, and of course Hollywood Boulevard and Highland , or Universal Studios.
    The most frequently asked question from people looking lost and disoriented at the NoHo (North Hollywood ) station is: Does this train go to UNION STATION?
 I  remind everyone of point no.2 this is both the end of the line at NORTH HOLLYWOOD or take off point for UNION STATION, DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES since this is North Hollywood we must be heading to  Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles. This Red Line cannot physically shove you any further North into the hills...yet.  All aboard.

Of interest for people whose blood sugar dropped suddenly:  McDonalds on the Highland stop, or the Trader Joes for some organic jalapeno almonds with an organic fruit roll-ups at the Hollywood and Vine stop.

Of interest to vinyl lovers and lovers of all music:  Amoeba Records on Sunset and Cahuenga blvd., a brisk walk from the Hollywood and Vine stop. (stop your whining , it's good for your heart, and will make up for the extra fries you had to have back there).

Of interest for men who love other men and don't want to drive drunk: The Santa Monica and Vermont stop leaves you a couple of blocks from The Faultline located on Melrose Blvd. and Vermont. The bar for men who just happen to love men who smell like well ... men and not so much like that one strong cologne with a girls name I can never remember. Some may be smoking cigars and be extra hairy. This bar is not a leather bar it's considered a levi's/leather bar. The leather bar is The Eagle, a couple of more blocks down on Santa Monica blvd. Play nice, now.
