Taxi and Public Transportation Guide

Taking a taxi or form of public transportation? Universal has several options for you.

Taxis (including Ubers & Lyfts)

Universal Citywalk offers two taxi stands and drop-off points. The first is immediately next to the theme park entrance, and the second is adjacent to the ET parking garage entrance (at the far end of Citywalk). When taking a taxi, Uber, or Lyft, we recommend specifying you be dropped off immediately next to the park entrance to save time.

When exiting the park, you can either hop in a waiting taxi at the nearest stand, or call an Uber or Lyft to pick you up. If the taxi stand is packed, consider heading to the alternate stand adjacent to the E.T. parking garage entrance.

Public Transportation

The best way to reach Universal Studios Hollywood via public transportation is through a Metro Redline train, with service from Union Station to North Hollywood. Tickets cost $3.50 for a round-trip ($7 for a one day pass with any Metro service except for Silver Line and Express buses). Universal City has its own dedicated stop; get off here and head across the street to the NBCUniversal building at the base of the theme park’s hill.

Complimentary, official Universal Shuttles will take you to the top of the hill and to the center of Universal Citywalk. They typically run from one hour before the theme park’s opening and up to two hours after the theme park closes. A day-of schedule is posted at the shuttle station.
