Weekend visitors to Griffith Park who go car-free will be able to explore attractions other than the observatory without spending a dime or breaking a sweat. A new hop-on, hop-off shuttle will stop at a dozen locations throughout the park, including Travel Town and the Autry Museum.

The GP Parkline shuttle service, which Mayor Eric Garcetti unveiled Tuesday, will begin operation Saturday. It will run from noon to 10 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

Park visitors can now take a daily DASH bus from Metro’s Red Line Vermont/Sunset station to the Greek Theatre and Griffith Observatory. The shuttle will provide access to more destinations within the park.

“The foundation was laid with the DASH Observatory Route, and this is yet another piece of the puzzle,” said Ashley Rodriguez of L.A.'s Department of Recreation and Parks. “People can come to the park and get around without a car, which makes the park available to people who never had a way to visit before.”
