We’ve just released Los Angeles Teleport to help you find your cost & commute optimal place to live in and around L.A. – try it out now!

Los Angeles Teleport helps you save time and money – just tell us where you work and live at the moment and we will do the calculations for you to make sure you find a great and affordable place with the shortest commute. When you’ve submitted your current location and work place and toggled your filters, your map will color code areas in L.A. to let you know which ones are the best suit for what you’re looking for.

Previously on Teleport for Urban Areas, we’ve released Bay Area Teleport and New York Teleport, which have been a hit with people looking for the best places to live in those areas. We’ve been busy gathering the global cost & quality of life data in startup cities around the world and now we’ve made our way to the City of Angels.


There are several filters you can add to calculate your best place in L.A., including housing, commuting, transportation, food and nightlife, culture, fitness and safety – based on your preferences of those aspects, Los Angeles Teleport will give you a list of the best area matches for you. If you can think of any other filters you’d like to see, you can let us know under the “add filters” tab and we’ll see what we can do.


Your results list will be sorted by best match by default, but you can also sort it by commute, rent price, availability, total time or total money – whichever aspect is most important to you. And then there is additional cool stuff like picking your favourite life spot candidates into a list, sharing links to your results with friends, etc — try it out and you’ll see.

Go ahead and have a whirl! We’d love to hear what you think - if you have any questions, comments or feedback at all, please don’t hesitate to drop us a note at contact@teleport.org!
