The first night of the Holly Trolley was a slow one, even driving the route empty at times. But with not even half the press and advertising the Orange Line received, the trolley will build its audience like any good restaurant or club does - buzz.

Thursday nights in Hollywood are not always the place to be. Tonight will be the true test of the Holly Trolley as Hollywood Boulevard becomes gridlocked, lines form outside clubs, and foot traffic is plentiful. Sara and George Misa from West L.A. checked it out after drinks at Joseph's Cafe. After their test ride, they want to make use of the service by parking in one spot, getting dinner, and then heading to a club in the opposite side of Hollywood.

In November, Eric Garcetti, who spearheaded the project from the city's end, told Warren Olney on Which Way L.A.? that "we are going to admit we are a city finally, not a sprawling suburb... Our best friend is really going to be density in this city" With that, LAist gives kudos to the Holly Trolley as a good idea that is a new take on TOD. Let the party bus roll on!
