WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — The Los Angeles Times reported that the city of West Hollywood is piloting a trolley bus service during late-night hours on Fridays and Saturdays to reduce traffic congestion and drunk driving. The two buses, 1997 and 1999 Freightliner All American Classic Trolleys, will travel a four-mile loop and stop outside nightclubs, restaurants and bars.

The service, called the PickUp line, is meant to provide another option for people who would prefer to drive their cars or take cabs instead of riding the bus. For the full story, click here.
