Last year, 60yr old plus woman. I arrived late into LA and was staying across the road overnight, and had thought when I booked my accommodation , that I would be good to walk from the station to my digs. When I walked outside with my walking stick and luggage, there was literally hundreds of people dossing down and several gangs of youths hanging around. It was very late at night and I decided that I would not be walking so got a taxi, driver thought this was all very amusing and heckled me the whole time I was in the car. Got to the front door of the Metro P and the night concierge literally dragged me in the door. This was the only time I didn't feel safe on that trip. I was very thankful that the guys saw me coming, gangs were on there way in my general direction by the time I got out of the taxi. No sign of anyone in the morning when I ventured outside. This year, I stayed closer to the airport and had no difficulties at all. Walked out of the station into my Uber and enjoyed the next few days. Lovely station, but not after dark. I travel solo, generally, and am from out of country.
