Here’s the info on bus detours and Hollywood/Highland Station closure during The Oscars

Map provided by The Oscars.

The 90th Annual Academy Awards will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood this coming Sunday and Metro buses are beginning detour schedules as preparations are underway for the show.

Metro Bus Lines 212, 217, 222 and 780 will be on detour routes in the Hollywood area through 6 a.m. Tuesday, March 6, or until barricades are removed by the city of Los Angeles. For route and stop details, please check the Service Advisories page.

The Metro Red Line will run regular Sunday schedule on March 4; however, trains will bypass Hollywood/Highland Station the entire day. There will be no public access to the station. Customers are encouraged to use Hollywood/Vine Station as an alternate and transfer to bus or walk.

Red Line trains will resume service to Hollywood/Highland Station with the start of service on Monday, March 5. 

More buses are expected to detour leading up to Oscar Sunday, so please visit the Service Advisories page for specific route information.

    • Hi Morris,

      The map is provided by The Oscars. As far as I can tell they didn’t include a key for what the purple means.

      Thank you,
