The Melrose Business Improvement District (BID) has partnered with electric car service ParkPlace Cali to offer a FREE shopping shuttle along Melrose Ave. every Saturday and Sunday from 12 noon to 7 p.m. for the remainder of July (July 9 & 10, July 16 & 17, July 23 & 24 and July 30 & 31). With this shuttle, you can get from place to place without a long walk or moving your car.
The seven-seat shuttle — which looks like an open-air Cadillac — will have marked stops along Melrose Ave. on the north and south sides, and if you’re on the shuttle, you can ask the driver to drop you off. A map of the stops is posted on the Melrose BID website.
The Melrose Shopping Shuttle is being sponsored by the Melrose BID along with several Melrose businesses including Cosmo & Nathalia, The Groundlings Theatre & School, Love Baked Wings and Manic Panic. If it proves to be as popular with shoppers as expected, the BID may continue running it all summer into the fall.
