Weekend Traffic: LA Pride parade closures (MAP)

Sunday in West Hollywood, the annual L.A. Pride parade means Santa Monica Boulevard and nearby streets will be closed from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. The parade starts at 11 a.m. at Santa Monica and Crescent Heights boulevards and travels west towards Robertson Boulevard. Instead of driving around the area, take the free City of West Hollywood City Line shuttle to travel along Santa Monica Boulevard from Plummer Park to La Peer Drive, near Pavilions. 

And for those of you in Lancaster or Palmdale, don't forget about the summer beach shuttle buses that run Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays between Lancaster City Park and the Palmdale Transportation Center to Santa Monica Pier. Altadena, Castaic, Charter Oak/Duarte, East L.A., La Crescenta/La Canñada and Topanga Canyon shuttles will start running later in June. Schedules are posted below. You can reserve your spot online as well. 

The Playa Vista Beach Shuttle is also up and running on Fridays and weekends between Venice Beach and Playa Vista. Follow the shuttle in real-time with the NextBus app.

Map: These streets will be closed in West Hollywood all day Sunday.
