The Women’s March will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in downtown Los Angeles. It will start in Pershing Square and end in Grand Park. The kickoff stage will be located at the corner of 5th Street and Hill Street.

CityLineX, the city’s free mini-bus service for commuters, will transport WeHo residents to the Metro Red Line station at Hollywood and Highland. Those going to the march can take the Red Line to stations at Pershing Square/5th Street and at Civic Center/Grand Park.

CityLineX shuttles will begin departing at 7 a.m. from CityLineX stops at Santa Monica Boulevard and Sweetzer Avenue, and at Santa Monica Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue. Beginning at 7:15 a.m., shuttles will depart from the CityLineX stop at West Hollywood Library, located at 625 N. San Vicente Blvd. Shuttles will stop to pick up passengers in 15 to 20 minute intervals, with the last shuttle departing from the library at 9 a.m.

CityLineX will pick up passengers at all of its regular stops along Santa Monica Boulevard, which include Robertson, San Vicente, Westbourne, La Cienega, Sweetzer, Crescent Heights, Fairfax, Sierra Bonita and La Brea, en route to the Metro Red Line Station at Hollywood and Highland.

Women’s March Los Angeles participants are advised to use Metro Red Line service toward downtown Los Angeles and exit at Pershing Square/5th Street.

CityLineX returning shuttles will bring people back from Hollywood and Highland at approximately 30-minute intervals beginning at noon.

The goal of the march is to advocate for ending violence, protection of reproductive rights, LGBTQIA rights, workers’ rights, civil rights, disability rights, immigrant rights, Indigenous people’s rights and environmental justice.
