The first weekend of October is shaping up to be a big one for transit accessible fun. Here’s one suggested itinerary: check out some free 3D films in just off the Red Line in Hollywood, take a bus to Eagle Rock for the Eagle Rock Music Festival and hop on the Silver Line to check out some Reptiles and Amphibians at the Natural History Museum.
