West Hollywood is the only city in L.A. that doesn’t have a Metro rail station within its city limits, so, this month, it’s going to start busing people to the nearest subway station for free.
The new mini-bus service, dubbed CitylineX, will offer free weekday commutes from West Hollywood to the Hollywood & Highland Metro Red Line station in neighboring Los Angeles.
West Hollywood Mayor Lindsey P. Horvath said in a statement:
The city of West Hollywood is always looking for innovative ways to provide transportation alternatives that give people an opportunity to move around without cars.
CitylineX will run during morning and evening commuting hours from 7 to 9 a.m. and 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, offering seven trips in the morning and five trips in the evening to Hollywood & Highland. The trips will be 15 to 20 minutes apart, city officials said.
Eastbound shuttles will depart from the West Hollywood Library at 625 N. San Vicente, and westbound shuttles will depart from the west side of Highland Avenue.
The service will have its official launch Tonight (1.12.16), looks like it’ll be a fun and convenient shuttle ride, no? (LA Times)
