LADOT Ready for Late Night DASH Service

11_4_08_dash.jpg

LADOT has officially joined in the effort to bring late night transit service to downtown Los Angeles.  A new report by the Department encourages the City Council to fund their proposal to run late night bus service along two routes in the Downtown.

However, while their is support for the bus routes, the proposal won't move forward without private funding.  The cost of running the late night service will be $180,000 for 2009, and while LADOT will provide the buses for the service they are asking private business, who just coughed up over $50,000 for Metro's late night train service pilot program, to  cover the cost of transit services that will benefit their businesses.  If only they would take the same stand with the Dodgers.

Blogdowntown has some information on routing and cost:

The added route travels east on 7th street, north on Main to 1ststreet, south on Broadway to 9th and then loops back up to 8th streetbefore heading west to join up with the original line at the 7th/MetroRed Line station.
