Angels Flight Railway

For just 50 cents (or 25 cents for holders of valid Metro Passes) you can board one of the two orange and black incline Angels Flight Railway cars and ride “The Shortest Railway in the World.”

This funicular dates back to 1901, when Bunker Hill was one of the most fashionable neighborhoods in Los Angeles and the cars, Olivet and Sinai, ferried prominent citizens up and down the steep slope between Hill and Olive streets.

The beloved landmark was dismantled for “urban renewal” of the area in 1969. In the early 1990s, the Railway was refurbished and relocated a half-block south, reopening adjacent to California Plaza in 1996. As short as it is (298 feet), Angels Flight is an essential Los Angeles experience.
