Did you get a chance to check out the lineup for the Hollywood Bowl's 2012 season yesterday? If you're already planning your picnic baskets full of vino and cheese, just be sure you budget an extra couple of bucks for the evening if you're planning on picking up the shuttle bus, since the price of the ride is going up.

Tuesday the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved an increase for the fee for the Bowl's popular park-and-ride shuttle service, reports City News Service.

Tickets for the shuttle buses serving lots in the vicinity of the Bowl (from Ventura Blvd. in Studio City, Hollywood Blvd., and near the Los Angeles Zoo in Griffith Park) will find their fee upped a buck to $5 round trip. Concert-goers picking up the shuttle from the farther-flung lots, like in Sherman Oaks, Santa Monica, Torrance and Rowland Heights, will have to pay $10 round trip, which is a $2 increase. Advance purchase tickets for those shuttles, however, will remain $5.
