7 Days a Week DASH Service to the Observatory and Paid Parking

Starting Tuesday, March 21st, the Griffith Observatory DASH bus will be operating 7 days a week, while paid parking is being implemented at the Observatory.

The DASH bus service will go from the Vermont/Sunset Metro Station all the way up to the Observatory, going mostly along Hillhurst Ave. before heading West along Los Feliz Blvd. and then going into the park along Vermont Ave.

The fare is 50 cents (35 cents with a TAP card), running every 20 minutes Monday through Friday from noon to 10 p.m. and on weekends from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Parking closest to the Griffith Observatory will now be $4/hr, with the revenue going directly to continual traffic improvements at Griffith Park as part of the Griffith Park Transportation Plan, such as the expanded DASH service.

The Griffith Park Transportation Plan was vetted by park leadership with residents and other stakeholders for the past few years, including at several meetings hosted by the Los Feliz Neighborhood Council and the Los Feliz Improvement Association, among others.

No word yet on when the proposed DASH Los Feliz and DASH Hollywood routes will go into effect or what the final routes will be.
