    there is a good public transit system , here

    the Metro (thats the company that operates most of the transit in the LA area -does have all day bus pass for $3.00

    its good on any Metro bus and rail lines

    you meantion santa monica,

    now in Santa Monica they have their own bus company [which is called the Big Blue bus] (which does not *accept the metro day pass) however you can

    get an inter-agency transfer from the Metro driver to the Big Blue bus for 25cents..

    (the Big Blue buses have routes that extend from

    Pacific Palasaide to the Green Line as well as express to downtown Los Angeles.)

    There is public transportation between Santa Monica and Hollywood. As LA goes, they're not that far apart. You might invest in some cab rides, especially at night.

    You really don't want to try and walk between the two. There are numerous buses and even the train. The bus drivers are really very helpful, at least I've found them to be.

    you either need a car, a motorcycle, or a moped to get around in la... or through a taxi, walking is impossible. people think you are a hooker if they see you walking on the streets.

    Ask your relatives or friends to drive you and tell them that you will drive them in return when they go to your place.

    that stuff is pretty close by, but you can hardly get anywhere without driving.
