You can even hop on the Red Line and get off at the Hollywood/Highland subway station. Once above ground, jump to a free shuttle to stops around West Hollywood. The town is merging existing shuttle paths to form a line known as Pride Ride. It will run from 1 p.m. till 3 a.m. Friday, from 11 a.m. until 3 a.m. Saturday, also from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. Sunday.
To adapt the festivities, West Hollywood is closing a number of streets, so if you’re planning to attend–or just traveling through the area –you’ll want to know about the closures. Here’s what to expect:
Paid parking will also be available at municipal parking garages.
According to the city’s website, metered parking will be available throughout the weekend (it’ll likewise be enforced), and the city is suspending allow parking restrictions till Monday at noon.
The same segment of the street will close in the westbound direction at 9 a.m. Saturday. From 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, the street will close in the two directions between Fairfax Avenue and Doheny Drive. It will also reopen Monday morning.
Given the range of people likely to attend the event, driving might not be the perfect approach to get there.
