Waterfront Red Car Line

Red Car 500

The Port of Los Angeles Waterfront Red Car Line is a 1.5-mile vintage trolley line connecting the World Cruise Center with attractions along the LA Waterfront. Restored and replica Pacific Electric Red Cars were designed to serve the area with both transportation and enjoyment purposes. When the Waterfront Red Car Line was inaugurated on July 19, 2003, it marked the first time in more than 40 years that Red Cars had run anywhere in Los Angeles using a historic Red Car route. The four Red Car boarding points are at the World Cruise Center, Downtown, Ports O' Call, and Marina stations. The Downtown Station at 6th Street and Harbor Boulevard stands where the original Pacific Electric San Pedro Depot stood years ago.

The Port of Los Angeles will suspend operations of the Waterfront Red Car Line on September 27, 2015 in preparation for the Sampson Way Realignment Project near Ports O' Call Village. During construction along Sampson Way at 7th Street and Harbor Boulevard, the San Pedro Waterfront Trolley, operated by San Pedro Business Improvement District, will enhance trolley service routes to ensure visitor mobility will continue without interruption.

Red Car hours of operation are from noon to 9 p.m., Friday through Sunday, with free unlimited rides through Sunday, September 27.

To ride the Red Cars, take the Harbor Freeway (110 south) and exit Harbor Boulevard, right. Free parking is available at the Downtown Station at 6th Street, Ports O' Call Station at Sampson Way and Marina Station at 22nd Street.
