WeHo Weekend ‘Entertainment Shuttle’ Gets Branding Company

The West Hollywood City Council moved forward with plans for a weekend “entertainment shuttle” on Monday.

The council started the bidding process to find a shuttle service provider for a 6-month pilot program, which will run from July 1 through December, and approved paying Symblaze Inc. $17,000 for branding and marketing (council members voted 4-0, with Councilmember John D’Amico abstaining).

The shuttle, approved in April, will make 15-minute runs from Doheny Drive to Fairfax Avenue along Santa Monica Boulevard with a detour to the West Hollywood Public Library parking deck on San Vicente Boulevard. It will operate on Fridays and Saturdays from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m.

If possible, the council asked that a “demonstration vehicle” be available for the LA Pride Parade on Sunday, June 9.

The expected cost for the six-month pilot program is $93,000, which does not include marketing and branding costs.

    There’s no reason why this shuttle shouldn’t stop at the Hollywood/Highland Red Line Station.

    I agree with Andres – connecting to Hollywood/Highland will open up West Hollywood’s nightlife to lots of people in Hollywood, Silver Lake, and even Downtown who don’t like the current encouragement of drunk-driving.

    The entertainment shuttle only serves the city of West Hollywood. Hollywood, Silver Lake, and downtown are in Los Angeles city limits. Different jurisdictions.
