The annual LA Pride event takes place this weekend in West Hollywood and is expected, as usual, to attract hundreds of thousands of people.
With street closures in effect, we recommend not driving into the WeHo area unless you really like traffic. And there are good transit alternatives:
•The city of WeHo is running three free shuttles, including one that connects with Metro’s Red Line at the Hollywood/Highland Station — see the map above. The last Red Line train to NoHo leaves Hollywood/Highland at 2:33 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights and the last train to Union Station from Hollywood/Highland Station is 2:17 a.m.
•Several Metro Bus lines provide service to the festival or nearby, including the 4 and 704 on Santa Monica Boulevard, the 10 on Melrose Avenue, the 30 on San Vicente Boulevard, the 105 on La Cienega Boulevard and the 217 and 218 on Fairfax Avenue.
•Metro will also be rerouting several bus lines at times due to event street closures, including some of the above. Here is the detour notice for the 10 and 30 for the entire weekend and here is the notice for Sunday when part of Santa Monica Boulevard will be closed for the L.A. Pride/Christopher West Parade. Even with the detours, the buses still get riders within walking distance of the event.
