The BID-Branded, Open-Air Electric Car Will Run Every Saturday & Sunday For Visitors Shopping Within the BID Boundaries (Fairfax to Highland Along Melrose), Adding To the Excitement of the Melrose Shopping Experience

WHO:           The Melrose Business Improvement District (BID)

WHAT:         The Melrose BID has partnered with electric car service, ParkPlace Cali, to offer a FREE shopping shuttle every Saturday and Sunday in July for shoppers looking to get from one end of the street to the other without moving their cars. The BID stretches 22 blocks along Melrose Ave from Fairfax to Highland and in the hot weather it’s a long walk if you’re interested in visiting shops along the entire route. The seven-seat shuttle—which looks like an open-air Cadillac-—will have many marked stops, see map above. 

Westbound Stops

  • Between Orange Grove & Ogden
  • Between Gardner & Vista
  • Between Martel & Fuller
  • Between Fuller & Poinsettia
  • Between Alta Vista & Formosa

Eastbound Stops

The Melrose Shopping Shuttle is being sponsored by the BID along with several Melrose businesses including Cosmo & Nathalia, The Groundlings, Love Baked Wings and Manic Panic. If it proves to be as popular with shoppers as expected, the BID may continue running it all summer into the Fall.

WHEN:         July 9 & 10, July 16 & 17, July 23 & 24 and July 30 & 31—12pm to 7pm.

WHERE:       Melrose Ave from Fairfax to Highland. Stops are located throughout the BID
