With the return of in-person Pride festivities in West Hollywood for WeHo Pride on June 3, 4, and 5, the City of West Hollywood’s free shuttle to Hollywood and Highland, Cityline Commuter, and the City’s free weekend nighttime and Sunday Funday ride, The PickUp, will get together and become a free Pride Ride for WeHo Pride weekend.
Pride Ride will offer a safe and convenient way to-and-from Metro rail service at Hollywood and Highland and destinations in the City of West Hollywood, traveling along Santa Monica Boulevard. In Hollywood, vehicles will stop on Highland Avenue (just south of Hollywood Boulevard on the west side of the street). The City reminds Pride-goers that COVID-19 cases have risen in recent weeks in Los Angeles County and Pride Ride will require mask-wearing while on board; Metro has a systemwide mask requirement, as well, at this time.
On Friday, June 3, 2022, Pride Ride will run from 1 p.m. to 3 a.m. This will provide transportation for the West Hollywood Dyke March and the Women’s Freedom Festival, as well as the opening day of the free #WeHoPride Street Fair and the ticketed OUTLOUD Music Festival. Vehicles will travel along Santa Monica Boulevard from N. La Brea Avenue to N. Robertson Boulevard. Cityline shuttles will run to and from Hollywood and Highland from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m., while The PickUp will operate on its regular schedule, from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m.
On Saturday, June 4, 2022, Pride Ride will run from 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. This will provide transportation for the free Street Fair and the ticketedOUTLOUD Music Festival. During these hours, Cityline vehicles will provide service around West Hollywood and to-and-from Hollywood and Highland from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. The PickUp will operate from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. along Santa Monica Boulevard from N. La Brea Avenue west to N. Robertson Boulevard.
On Sunday, June 5, 2022, Pride Ride will run from 11 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. This will provide transportation to the WeHo Pride Parade, which steps-off at 12 p.m. (noon) from the intersection of Santa Monica and N. Crescent Heights Boulevards and travels westbound along Santa Monica Boulevard, ending at N. Robertson Boulevard. Due to parade-related street closures, the Cityline Commuter service will operate between the Hollywood/Highland and Santa Monica/Fairfax stops between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Following the WeHo Pride Parade – once streets have reopened – The PickUp will run along Santa Monica Boulevard between N. La Brea Avenue and N. Robertson Boulevard from 5 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. for access to and from #WeHoPride festivities.
Pride-goers may also take one of several Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) bus lines that connect to the City of West Hollywood.
