Two exciting opportunities for action and giving back to the community will be available for West Hollywood residents on Saturday, January 19, 2019: the 2019 City of West Hollywood Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service event, and the Cityline Commuter’s free, ADA-Accessible special service for the Women’s Day March Los Angeles - both at West Hollywood Park, located at 625 N.

Riders will then be able to ride the Metro Red Line rail, which has stations at Pershing Square and at City of Los Angeles City Hall. Shuttle service will be held at approximately 15- to 30-minute intervals. The Cityline Commuter will depart from West Hollywood Park around 7 a.m. with the last shuttle leaving at approximately 8:45 a.m. Returns from the Hollywood/Highland Red Line Station into West Hollywood will begin approximately at 1:30 p.m. with the last shuttle departing at approximately 4:15 p.m. These times are approximate.
