I am from Ft Lauderdale, going to see Billy Joel in LA on May 13th. I am staying Thursday May 11th at the new courtyard Santa Monica and Friday & Saturday at the Sheraton Grand Los Angeles. To get from Santa Monica to the Sheraton Friday, I have two options:
1. Take an uber that will cost $30.
2. Take the expo line on the metro for a total of $3.50.
Having never traveled the metro in LA before, any recommendations on either mode of transport? I see the blue line runs through some notable areas of the city as far as crime goes, but the expo line?
