I will shortly be moving to San Francisco, and I'm seriously thinking of ditching my car so that I don't have to pay gas, insurance, parking, and so on. I will have a carless commute.
However, I have friends in LA that I like to visit regularly, so my question is: of the three choices, plane, train, or (rental) car, what is the cheapest way to get from San Francisco to LAX? Assume that at LAX I can either be picked up by a friend with a car, or rent a car there (but include that rental in the cost).
