Getting Here

Thank you for your interest in our Park and Ride and Shuttle programs.  Our Park & Ride and Shuttle programs allow you to park at a lot around LA County or near the Bowl and a bus will take you straight to the Bowl.  We are working on finalizing the lot locations and departure times for the upcoming season.  Park and Ride and Shuttle tickets will be available in March, closer to the Hollywood Bowl 2023 season.  At that time, you will be able purchase Park and Ride and Shuttle tickets on our Getting Here page.


Please arrive at the theatre with enough time to take your seats before the scheduled performance. Gates will open 2 hours prior to the start of a concert and we suggest arriving at least one hour prior to your performance.

Visit our Getting Here page for directions, parking, public transportation and ride share, Park & Ride / Bowl Shuttle information and more.
