With the 100-year-old “Olivet” funicular rail car in the background, John H. Welborne, President of the Angels Flight® Railway, looks on as Metro Communications Manager Mike Barnes makes final detail checks of a new mapcase installed at the base of Angels Flight on Hill Street. Metro installed the mapcase to provide riders and passersby with a display of the activity centers located near Angels Flight.
To promote the connectivity of “the shortest railway in the world” with Metro’s nearby bus and rail service, all Angels Flight® riders that provide a TAP card loaded with a daily, weekly or monthly pass can receive a 50% discount on Angels Flight fare (25 cents instead of 50 cents!). Angels Flight® is open every day from 6:45 a.m. until 10 p.m. To get there, take the Metro Red or Purple Line to Pershing Square Station and exit towards 4th Street, or hop on Metro Bus 2/302 or Rapid 794 to Hill/3rd.
