From De Neve Plaza
Walk to De Neve's main entrance (in
front of crossing leading to Bruin Walk) and arrive at
Charles E. Young Drive W.
Walk downhill on Charles E. Young
Drive W. (passing tennis courts on left) to arrive and
turn right onto to Strathmore Place.
Turn left on Gayley Avenue
and immediately cross the street to your right to arrive at
Gayley Avenue/Strathmore Place Metro bus stop (with the 2 and 302
on the bus street sign and no bench).
Wait for the bus (maximum wait time
of 30 minutes) and wave to the bus driver when you see a
"2" or "302" bus coming your way. They will NOT stop if
you don't signal your presence, trust us, we've learned
the hard way.
Get your $1.25 ready and climb
aboard. Remember to always make the seats toward the
front of the bus available to any elderly or disabled
rider if all other seats are taken.
Bus ride should take no longer than
1hr, longer times expected during rush hour.
Pay attention to either the automated
computer voice or LED screen for the Higland stop.
There should be a Carl's Jr. Jr at the upcoming street
corner and a high school to your left. Pass the Carl's Jr.
Jr. and you've gone too far.
Pull the stop request cable to signal the
bus driver to stop at the upcoming stop.
Exit using the rear doors. If the doors
aren't open, kindly but loudly, ask the driver to open the
Cross Sunset Boulevard to the
Hollywood High School corner and continue walking
up Highland Avenue.
Walk for two blocks. First block will end
marking the end of the high school. Next block should be
shorter and will end with a gift shop at the corner.
Return to Highland Avenue and
walk back down in the direction of the high school in front
of the bus stop you used. Once you get to the corner with
the Hollywood High School sign, cross Highland
Avenue to your left where you will find a bust stop
bench (the Carl's Jr. Jr. lies across the street).
Wait for a "2" bus with 'UCLA' in the LED
headsign on the front. There will be more than one "2"
buses, but waiting for one that says 'UCLA' is best. Once
one arrives, wave to the driver and ask if it's going to
Ackerman Terminal or to which location near UCLA. Do this as
you are paying your fare and being enough inside so he/she
may close the doors or with enough space for other people to
get in. Once he/she lets you know where by UCLA the bus
stops, acknowledge the location and make sure you get off
on the location nearest UCLA or at Ackerman Terminal. TIP:
All "2" busses returning from Hollywood should at least stop
in front of the Best Buy by UCLA. If the bus driver said
that he will not drive into Ackerman, this is your best
