Suppose you're coming to Anaheim without a car and aren’t sure how their public transportation works, but you need a way to get around. Have no fear! It’s easy to get around Anaheim without a car because there are lots of transportation options in Anaheim.

Today, public transportation, ridesharing, and apps make traveling without a car both convenient and affordable. If you drive, there are expensive parking fees, so going without a car will save you time, and money, especially at major theme parks like Disneyland Resort.

Anaheim Resort Transit (ART)


ART is part of Orange County’s public transportation system that serves the Disneyland Resort and surrounding areas. More than 9 million people use ART’s hop-on/hop-off service each year to connect with local attractions, theme parks, sports venues, shopping malls, hotels, and restaurants, as well as the cities of Garden Grove, Buena Park, Costa Mesa, the City of Orange, and ARTIC, the regional transportation hub.

You can even buy ART passes on their A-Way WeGo and Token Transit apps available on the App Store or Google Play that are valid on the entire ART system.

Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA)

OC Bus

OCTA is the multimodal transportation company serving Orange County. Buses, Metrolink trains, cycling, ridesharing, and more modes of public transportation are also available through Anaheim. OCTA also has biking trails for those who enjoy the adrenaline rush. Any trip you want can be convenient and affordable with bus fares and passes, including one-way fares and monthly passes. Use the OC Bus mobile app or a paper pass, whichever is more convenient.
