take the METRO to Union Station and the Metrolink to Fullerton and cab it or bus it. Here is some info that could help:
La Habra, tucked away in the northwest corner of Orange County, has never been fortunate when it comes to transportation.
The town was promised two freeways by urban planners, but they were rerouted. So getting to La Habra from other parts of the county can take some time.
While no freeways run through or near La Habra, several major thoroughfares, including Beach and Harbor boulevards, Imperial Highway and Whittier Boulevard, crisscross the city.
Beach Boulevard allows access to the western edge of the city.
To get to points east in the city, take the Orange (SR-57) Freeway to Imperial Highway and head west.
Imperial takes drivers through mostly industrial complexes of Brea and Fullerton for about three miles until reaching La Habra.
A Metrolink station is located in nearby Fullerton. Two Metrolink routes operate in and out of Orange County: the Orange County Line with service between Oceanside and downtown Los Angeles, and the Inland Empire - Orange County Line running between San Bernardino and San Juan Capistrano.
For people who prefer the bus, the Orange County Transportation authority has several routes in La Habra. Bus fare is $1. Call (714) 636-7433 or visit www.octa.net for schedules and fare information.
Bicycling can be a challenge in many parts of La Habra. Several major streets rise and fall with the hilly terrain, creating uphill climbs and occasional blind curves and intersections that can be hazardous. Maps of bike lanes and paths can be downloaded from the Orange County Transportation Authority Web site.
The modern "superstore" designs of the shopping centers along Imperial Highway come with loads of parking, allowing easy access to sporting goods and discount stores.
A drive-through lane allows easy access to the popular Krispy Kreme doughnut shop.
The center of town is friendly to pedestrians, who can window shop along La Habra Boulevard or take a stroll to the library, City Hall, the police station and the community center.
