The service is “a program we are excited and proud to announce, and
feel it will benefit both the surrounding communities as well as locals and
tourists who wish to visit these historic landmarks,” Recreation and Parks

The shuttles, which seat 21 people, will pick up riders at the Greek
Theatre parking lot and take them to a Hollywood Sign viewing spot that is
closed to public vehicle traffic. The viewing site is also an access point for
hiking trails.
The shuttle route includes a stop at the Griffith Observatory, two miles
from the sign viewing area.
Children 2 years of age and under can ride free if they sit on an
adult’s lap.
