Hollywood Bowl park-and-ride to see fare hike
Getting to the Hollywood Bowl this summer will be slightly more expensive for the thousands of people who rely on the park-and-ride services and shuttles.
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved this week a measure to increase round-trip park-and-ride service from $8 to $10 for those who purchase their tickets on site at the lots. Those who purchase tickets in advance will avoid the hike and pay $5, the same as in previous seasons.
Some additional fees may apply for advance purchase, so riders could end up paying more than $5. For example, purchasing a park-and-ride ticket on Ticketmaster incurs a $2.25 surcharge.
Shuttle service from four close-by shuttle lots -- two located on Ventura Boulevard near Universal City, as well as one at Hollywood and Highland and one at the L.A. Zoo -- will increase from $4 to $5. As with the park-and-ride service, there can be surcharges when purchasing shuttle tickets in advance online.
