Holly Trolley Goes MySpace
Last night I login into MySpace tonight and there is the usual flurry of spam friend requests. But tonight was different: there was a friend request from a picture I knew quite well. That's because I took it when covering the Holly Trolley last year.
Last week, a new push for the Holly Trolley went into effect touting some changes, mainly the new 6:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. Thursday through Saturday service and a two week trial period beginning last week that extends the route to La Brea, a wee bit further than its usual Highland.
More importantly, the rides are free this month if you can represent with bar receipts, movie theater stubs or a Hollywood & Highland/ArcLight parking garage ticket. In return, the Holly Trolley receipt will get you $6 validation at the aforementioned parking garages.
The Holly Trolley is a great idea, but I have not found any personal use out of it yet when going to Hollywood. What I'm looking for is a easy and fast to go from Hollywood/Highland to the Sunset Strip in WeHo. Yeah, two different municipalities and two dualing chambers of commerce, but who cares -- it just might be the will of the party people.
