Public Transit

Discover Ktown Car-Free

The neighborhood’s prime location and excellent transit connectivity also contribute to its vibrancy. Koreatown’s central location in Los Angeles is reinforced by its major throughways and centrality within the Metro rail and rapid bus systems. Wilshire Blvd., which runs through the northern part of the neighborhood, is one of the most heavily traveled east-west arterials in Los Angeles. In Koreatown, Wilshire is densely developed with high-rise office buildings and, increasingly, luxury condominiums. Olympic Blvd., another of the region’s principal arterials, forms the backbone of the Korean community in the southern part of the neighborhood.
