Located in gorgeous and luxurious Orange County, La Palma is simple to navigate and has a wide array of transportation options to make entering or leaving the city a smooth process. Orange County has a sophisticated public transportation system that makes commuting a stress-free operation, while the entire Los Angeles area makes use of the metropolis’ long-distance air and rail travel options.

Southern California is home to an elaborate network of expressways that offer a direct route to nearly any destination in the region. Interstate 5 and state Route 91 serve La Palma most directly and link quickly with well-traveled highways such as I-605, I-405, I-710 and many more.

The Orange County Transportation Authority’s commuter rail lines carry more than 9,000 passengers on busy days and more than 1.6 million each year. Part of southern California’s rail system, Orange County’s remains the most well-used in the state. Lines travel to and from Los Angeles as well as many other parts of the region. The OCTA also operates a bus system that has become increasingly popular in recent years amid escalating fuel prices and traffic congestion. During peak hours, nearly 600 buses follow close to 80 routes. Moreover, OCTA planners consistently anticipate changing traffic conditions and adjust accordingly. A recent initiative, for example, will boost the system’s services by 49 percent during the next 11 years. Curb-to-curb services for disabled patrons are available as well.

Los Angeles International Airport remains one of the busiest transportation hubs on the planet, but several other major airports serve the area as well. Long Beach/ Daugherty Field is eight miles away, Orange County’s John Wayne Airport is 18 miles away, and Fullerton Municipal Airport is six miles away. The facilities combine to accommodate any long-distance travel need to or from Orange County.
