LOS ANGELES (CNS) - The NoHo DASH Line, a 6.5-mile line serving local destinations in North Hollywood, went into service Friday.

The bus line, operating on a loop, will run from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekends in 30-minute frequencies. The stops include the Metro B Line North Hollywood Station, NoHo West Shopping Mall, Roy Romer Middle School, Victory Vineland Recreation Center, East Valley High School and the NoHo Arts District.

Council President Paul Krekorian, who represents the area, attended a celebratory event Friday to mark the introduction of the line.

"In the 1930s, a young person like my mother could travel all over the Valley on the Red Car and other forms of public transportation," Krekorian said. "Things changed and we became more car-centric, but now things are changing again. With important steps like this new DASH line, we're making it possible for people of all ages to live, work and travel around the city without a car."

Connie Llanos, interim general manager of the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, added that the "NoHo line will not only connect residents to schools, grocery stores, and retail, but it will also help them connect to other forms of public transit, giving them real options for how they travel."
