UPDATE: Metro has eliminated some late night rail service that may affect return or connecting rail trips from this season's Hollywood Bowl events. As of June 7, 2005, rail service on the Wilshire/Western branch of the Metro Red Line, in addition to the Metro Gold and Green Lines, stops running one hour earlier than normal. Late night service on the Metro Blue Line is not affected. Be sure to call 1-800-COMMUTE for specific, point-to-point rail and bus information when planning your trip to and from the Hollywood Bowl.
This summer Metro will again offer non-stop service to the Hollywood Bowl, providing an easy way to beat the traffic and crowds at this popular outdoor venue.
Metro Bus Line 163 Special will begin service at the Metro Red Line Hollywood/Vine subway station on the southwest corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Argyle Avenue. Shuttle buses will run about every 20 minutes, starting three hours before scheduled performances. The last pre-show bus leaves the Metro Red Line Hollywood/Vine Station 30 minutes before showtime.
Return trips to the Hollywood/Vine Station start 20 minutes after the show and continue until approximately 11:30 p.m. Metro Red Line trains are scheduled to depart every 20 minutes at night.
Patrons can transfer to the Hollywood Bowl Shuttle free with the purchase of a $3 Metro Day Pass or by presenting their monthly Metro Pass. Otherwise, $1.25 shuttle fare applies.
Shuttles will run during the Hollywood Bowl season beginning June 24 and ending September 18.
