Except for a single day during the shooting of La La Land, the Angels Flight funicular railway in downtown Los Angeles hasn't operated since 2013. That's when a derailment during the long-running tourist attraction's steep sojourn on Bunker Hill prompted officials to close the ride down, pending repairs. La La Land director Damien Chazelle secured special permission to capture a kiss between th...

Now rolling (again): the bus that takes you overnight between Los Angeles and San Francisco in your own sleeping pod. If it sounds familiar, it's because we tried this already.

Firefly, a discount car rental brand, begins arriving at American airports this month. You might think it's a new competitor. As it turns out, everything about it is older than you think. Hertz created Firefly, a lower-priced offshoot, in Europe last spring, in part to fill the price gap that was left when it sold off the Advantage car rental brand. Now there are 40-odd locations there, in...
