In addition to the Los Angeles area public transportation systems (see https://www.metro.net/ and https://www.ladottransit.com/), Topanga is served by the following:
Topanga Beach Bus
This bus runs year-round, 7 days a week, from Owensmouth Avenue at Oxnard Street to the Expo Line Santa Monica Station (parking lot). For more information, visit: https://dpw.lacounty.gov/transit/topangabeachbus
New Freedom & Volunteer Mileage Reimbursement for seniors and disabled
LA County now provides a taxi door-to-door program that covers 4 one-way trips 40 miles (total) per month. Since Topanga is remote, this limits its assistance. But for nearby doctors or grocery shopping, etc., it could fill in. Also, the county will pay for mileage reimbursement to drivers. For details, visit WDACS New Freedom Taxicab Services Program – WDACS New Freedom Program.
