WeHo entertainment shuttle plan hits snag

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- West Hollywood’s City Council voted Monday night to reissue a “request for proposals” for operating the new entertainment shuttle after only receiving two responses.

In May, the council voted to start a six-month pilot program of a free nighttime shuttle to take people to clubs and restaurants along Santa Monica Boulevard between Doheny Drive and Orange Grove Avenue on Friday and Saturday nights.

Jeff Huffer, the city’s manager of economic development, said that the initial RPF only gave vendors 10 days to respond. He said several other companies had expressed interest in operating the shuttle but didn’t submit bids. By reissuing the RFP with a longer period to respond, the city hoped to get more bids.

“We want to have a broader range of options to offer the council,” Huffer said.
