Weekend visitors to Griffith Park who are car-free can explore attractions other than the observatory without paying a cent or sweating. A new hop-on hop-off shuttle stops at a dozen locations in the park, including Travel Town and the Autry Museum.

The GP Parkline shuttle service, Mayor Eric Garcetti unveiled Tuesday, will come into effect Saturday. It runs from noon to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Park visitors can now take a daily DASH bus from Metro & # 39; s Red Line Vermont / Sunset station to the Greek Theater and Griffith Observatory. The shuttle provides access to more destinations within the park.

"The foundation was laid with the DASH Observatory Route, and this is yet another piece of the puzzle," said Ashley Rodriguez of L.A.'s Department of Recreation and Parks. "People can come to the park and move around without a car, making the park available to people who had never had a way to visit it."

Five green and white shuttle buses run on the route between the existing DASH and Metro bus stops in and around the park. Buses are expected to arrive every 15 to 20 minutes. Each offers space for 25 passengers with extra space for prams and wheelchairs.

"For the first time in its 123-year history, visitors have access to all that Griffith Park has to offer without ever needing a car," said Councilor David Ryu in a statement. "The Parkline is free, accessible and efficient – and only one way do we reduce traffic and increase access in Griffith Park."

The shuttle is part of a series of upgrades in the park that were approved in 2016 as a way to reduce air pollution and improve access to the park.
