WATERFRONT RED CAR LINE OUT OF SERVICE FROM MAY 14 TO JUNE 28 AS WORK PROCEEDS ON DOWNTOWN HARBOR PROJECT
Downtown San Pedro Trolley to Make Additional Stops While Red Car is Non-Operational
SAN PEDRO, Calif. — May 9, 2012 — The Port of Los Angeles Waterfront Red Car Line will temporarily stop service from May 14 through June 28th -- with the exception of Memorial Day Weekend -- due to construction of the new Downtown Harbor Project near downtown San Pedro and Ports O’ Call Village.
Free rides on the Red Car Line will be available on Mother’s Day weekend from May 11 to 13th and the Red Car will also reopen with free rides on Memorial Day weekend from May 25-28th.
While the Red Cars are non-operational, the San Pedro Historic Waterfront Business Improvement District’s (PBID) Red Trolley will make stops along the Red Car route. The PBID Red Car Trolley runs on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 8 p.m. and the first Thursday of every month from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Normal Red Car hours of operation are from noon to 9:30 p.m., Friday through Sunday, which resumes on Friday, June, 29, for the Port’s Annual “Cars & Stripes Forever!” event, a patriotic car show celebration to kick off Independence Day. For more information, call (310) 732-3508, or visit www.portoflosangeles.org.
The Downtown Harbor project will create a new harbor inlet for vessels to dock and approximately 700 linear feet of promenade. Surrounding the inlet will be a modern town square, featuring landscaping, lighting and expansive promenades, expected to be completed in 2014.
