Parking at The Hollywood Bowl Is Turning Headache-Free

The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association (LA Phil)  announced new transportation initiatives for the LA Phil’s Hollywood Bowl 2023 Season to expand accessibility, ease traffic and enhance the concert-going experience. Parking at the Hollywood Bowl is now available to purchase in advance, and the Park & Ride and Shuttle bus line services have been expanded to provide convenient travel to and from the Bowl to a larger number of communities.


New for Summer 2023, patrons now have access to purchase reserved parking in advance for the limited number of parking spots available in Lots A (Blue), B (Yellow),

C (Red) and D (Green) by pre-purchasing passes via the easy-to-use ParkWhiz app. The app will also identify other local parking options when the Hollywood Bowl lots are full. This will make parking for the Hollywood Bowl much easier to navigate by providing real-time location information, helping to cut down on traffic and wait times.

Designed for those living between 8 and 30 miles away from the Hollywood Bowl, the Park & Ride buses provide 14 routes across Los Angeles County, allowing audiences to leave their cars behind. This season, a new line has been added at Willowbrook, located at Earvin “Magic” Johnson Park, East El Segundo Boulevard between Avalon Boulevard and Central Avenue, joining the existing lines at Arcadia, Chatsworth, Culver City, Downey, East LA, El Monte, Lakewood, Pasadena, Rowland Heights, Santa Monica, Sherman Oaks, Torrance and Westwood.

Buses in the Park & Ride program depart at set times, depending on their distance from the Hollywood Bowl, and arrive as early as two hours before the published concert start time, continuing until one hour before the concert begins. They return at the end of the performance.


The Hollywood Bowl Shuttle program serves locations closer to the venue, 0.5 miles to 8 miles away. Two new lines added this season are Burbank Metrolink, at 201 N. Front St., Burbank, and Pacific Design Center (for lease events starting in May and LA Phil weekend events only), in the Blue parking structure at 8687 Melrose Ave., West Hollywood. This makes a total of five shuttle locations, including already the existing LA Zoo, Ovation LA at Hollywood & Highland and Ventura Boulevard shuttle lines.

Hollywood Bowl Shuttle buses start 2.5 hours before the published concert time and run on a continuous loop until the concert begins. Return shuttles start at the end of the performance. Reservations for the shuttle buses are not required and are free with a Metro or Metrolink ticket purchased within 72 hours of travel.

Ticket holders can show their Park & Ride or Shuttle bus ticket to receive 20 percent off purchases at the Hollywood Bowl Plaza Marketplace.
