"Los Santos isn't famed for its public transport but, since all the locals refuse to use the Arrow subway system, at least it's quiet! If all else fails, jump in a cab or use your initiative to commandeer a vehicle by other means"
―GTA V digital manual

Los Santos Transit is the transportation authority network in Los Santos CountySan Andreas in Grand Theft Auto V. Los Santos Transit operates bus services and a light rail system. It is based of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority. The Arrow is the the name of the light rail system while the Bullet is the name of the bus system. The player can buy shares of the company in the BAWSAQ stock market.

The Bullet is the name of the bus system in Los Santos. There are four versions of the buses: blue, red, orange and turquoise. They can be found around the city and all of them drive to Downtown LS, according to their destination sign. In Grand Theft Auto Online, the only way to obtain a bus is to purchase one or visit the Dashound Bus Center in Textile City which is used as a station for the LST buses.

The bus system extends out of Los Santos as far as Paleto Bay, as seen in the Paleto Score Setup where Lester arrives on an LST bus from Los Santos.

The Arrow

Light Rail Vehicle operated by Los Santos Transit.

The Arrow is the name of Los Santos' only light rail line. The line has 11 stations and expands through most of the largest neighborhoods in Los Santos and the incorporated city of Davis. The system is both overground and underground.

The network starts and ends with loops at Davis and at Los Santos International Airport. An extension to Vinewood is under construction. The extension tunnels can be seen on the map when at stations or when riding the tram.

A full loop of the arrow system takes approximately 52 minutes in real time, or 26 hours in-game.

The LST is based of the Los Angeles County Metro Rail; the underground segment resembles the Red Line, while the above ground segments are based on the light rail lines of Los Angeles.

According to a Weazel News radio segment, The Los Santos Transit Authority announced funding for a new street car project for sixteen billion dollars. Rails will run on many popular streets, shutting them down for years during construction, and are promised to move traffic up to three miles per hour.

Trivia

  • Los Santos Transit is a spoof on the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the primary transit provider of Los Angeles.
  • The trains are based on the real life Siemens P2000 cars.
  • The ticket machines in the ground level stations are exact copies of the real LA Metro ticket machines, even with the in-game rendition featuring the copyrighted Tap card logo on the machines.
  • It is stated in a radio advertisement that the transit system is extremely unpopular and for "losers", but commuters still need to take it in order to avoid the dreaded Los Santos traffic.
  • While in LST stations, you can hear various announcements over the PA. Despite one of the announcements asking riders to not use cell phones and computers, the player may safely use their cell phone while riding.
  • Other announcements over the PA include: "Your safety is important to us, surveillance cameras are posted, though not monitored" and "Riding a train is not an excuse for inappropriate touching, no matter how tempting."
  • Also while the player is in a stationary train, they can engage in fights with other passengers. 
  • In Grand Theft Auto Online, the doors of the trains do not close. 
  • Unlike in GTA IV, the train will stop when anything is in its way.
