Visitors and patients of the Martin Luther King Medical Campus in Willlowbrook can now ride a free shuttle to move around the grounds, courtesy of the County of Los Angeles.
The wheelchair-accessible shuttle runs from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday thru Friday with nine stops throughout the campus including the new outpatient center, every 15 minutes.
“We want visitors get to, from and around the medical campus with ease,” said Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, who has helped fund the services. “The shuttle service is intended to do just that at no cost.”
It is the latest of three shuttle services now available in Willowbrook, with one ferrying passengers to and from the Rosa Parks Transit Station to the campus. The other shuttle runs east/west from the Hahn Plaza Shopping Center to 135th Street and San Pedro Street. The route includes many stops including Athens Park, Magic Jonson Park and Carver Park.
“This shuttle service allows patients and staff to move freely around the campus, from the parking lot to all the campus buildings,” said John Huang, transit manager for Public Works, who will be responsible for making sure the shuttles run smoothly.
