What is the mode of transportation in LA?
I am going to take classes at UCLA this summer, but I also want to get a job or internship at the same time. If the mode of transportation is public shuttle bus, then is it safe?

The mode of transporation is by bus. And yes, if you are young and pretty, men will try to hit on you. That's why we always tell people that you need a car. Too many lowlifes ride the bus, making it harder for regular folks to ride.
