The PickUp Celebrates Sunday Fundays During Summer

Post Date:June 14, 2016 5:18 PM

PickUpSundays2016Grab the sunscreen and throw on some flip-flops — The PickUp will celebrate summertime with “Sunday Funday” service. From Sunday, June 19, 2016 to Sunday, September 25, 2016, riders will be able to hook-up with The PickUp on Sundays from 2 p.m. until 10 p.m. at any one of its regular stops along Santa Monica Boulevard. “Nighttime Ride” service will continue its regular schedule on Fridays and Saturdays from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m.

The PickUp is a fun and flirtatious way to reach a destination in the City of West Hollywood; it’s a cool and convenient alternative to driving, and it’s free. The PickUp runs along Santa Monica Boulevard in a four-mile loop with 15 stops in each direction between Robertson Boulevard and La Brea Avenue. PickUp trolleys arrive at stops every 15 minutes and feature beat mixes by Derek Monteiro. Riders of The PickUp can also pick up a perk card that provides discounts and other perks from participating businesses when they hop on for a ride, which makes the switch from car to trolley well worth it. The PickUp helps to curb drunk driving, eases parking, and reduces traffic congestion.
