In just over an hour, the Late Night DASH Holiday pilot makes its first runs around Downtown. The service connects the Historic Core, 7th / Metro Red Line station, LA Live and the Music Center, offering 10-minute service from 6:30pm to 3am.

Add in extended hours on the Red Line, which also kick off tonight, and Downtown's getting quite the temporary transit boost.

Those looking to take the Late Night DASH (and please, that should be all of you) just need to look for the stop signs pictured. They went up this afternoon at stops along the route.

For those looking to take a bus from 7th / Metro, where the loop overlaps itself, be sure to pay attention to the headsign on the bus (the electronic display on the front above the windshield). That will indicate which way the bus is heading.

Those not looking to be out in the wee hours of the morning should be sure to note that the DASH route passes right by both the newly-opened Pershing Square Ice Rink, the LA Auto Show and Ralphs.
