The Port of Los Angeles Waterfront Red Car Line
is a 1.5-mile vintage trolley line connecting
the World Cruise Center with attractions along
the LA Waterfront. Restored and replica
Pacific Electric Red Cars were designed to serve
the area with both transportation and enjoyment
purposes. When the Waterfront Red Car Line was inaugurated
on July 19, 2003, it marked the first time in
more than 40 years that Red Cars had run anywhere
in Los Angeles using a historic Red Car route.
The four Red Car boarding points are at the World
Cruise Center, Downtown, Ports O' Call, and Marina
stations. The Downtown Station at 6th Street and
Harbor Boulevard stands where the original Pacific
Electric San Pedro
Depot stood years ago.
The Port of Los Angeles will suspend operations of the Waterfront Red Car Line on September 27, 2015 in preparation for the Sampson Way Realignment Project near Ports O' Call Village. During construction along Sampson Way at 7th Street and Harbor Boulevard, the San Pedro Waterfront Trolley, operated by San Pedro Business Improvement District, will enhance trolley service routes to ensure visitor mobility will continue without interruption.
Red Car hours of operation are from noon to 9 p.m.,
Friday through Sunday, with free unlimited rides through Sunday, September 27.
To ride the Red Cars, take the Harbor Freeway (110
south) and exit Harbor
Boulevard, right. Free parking is available at the Downtown
Station at 6th Street, Ports O' Call Station at Sampson
Way and Marina Station at 22nd Street.
