Area is very car dependent, which can be pricey for seniors on fixed income, and public transportation is not great in most areas of town; because of dense population there are a number of community engagement opportunities; West LA College and Santa Monica College are nearby community colleges, though they still require transportation, so difficult to access without car or funds for car service.
