WEST HOLLYWOOD—The City of West Hollywood is now providing the community with an alternative transportation service that will help connect city commuters to the West Hollywood and the Hollywood & Highland Metro Red Line Station. The city already has a Cityline service, which runs within West Hollywood, Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Promotional “Pop-Ups” began on January 11, along Santa Monica Boulevard to inform community members of the new service. There will be a CitylineX celebration on Tuesday, January 19, at 5 p.m. at the West Hollywood Library Auto Court, located at 625 N. Vicente Blvd. The unveiling of the service is free and open to the public, where “tacos and transit” snacks and refreshments will be provided.

The CitylineX will operate mornings from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. departing Eastbound from the West Hollywood Library, and evenings from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. departing Westbound from Highland Avenue on weekdays, with 15 to 20 minute intervals. The CitylineX will travel along Santa Monica Boulevard in both directions. The CitylineX service and Cityline service are both free.

The CitylineX service was approved by the West Hollywood City Council on a 6-month pilot program until June 2016. West Hollywood will assess the ridership, which will allow the City to test the program with existing resources.
