Hoping someone can help! How realistic are my chances of getting a reasonably priced (I.e. no surge pricing, I know the ride itself will be fairly pricey) uber or lyft back to my anaheim hotel after a performance at the hollywood bowl? I’m reading conflicting reports with some people being sceptical of finding a driver willing to do the journey. Basically my mum has her heart set on seeing the sing a long sound of music in September and I can’t drive while she is unwilling. We will be spending the entirety of our time apart from that one event in anaheim itself so it doesn’t make sense to book a hotel in Hollywood. I’m just looking for reassurance we won’t be stranded!! (Especially as, from what I can tell, public transport does not seem to run that late)
I can’t imagine no one would take your money, although my guess is you’ll be subject to surge pricing. We did Dodger Stadium to/from Anaheim and had no problem finding an Uber to get us back to Disneyland. I’d presume the Hollywood Bowl would offer a similar experience.
I’d guess your trip “home” would run another 50% or so based on surge pricing, but it does beat the alternative walk by quite a bit…
This is true. I have read that it helps to walk a little bit to hollywood blvd and hail a ride from there so I might try that
We did that after the Angels game we went too - worked out well to give us an easier pickup spot. No surge pricing on that one but it was an afternoon game & a much different location than Dodger Stadium which has nothing around it.
If you can find a bar/coffee spot nearby you’re comfortable waiting at that could give you the time needed for the surge pricing to pass as well…
Another option is a bus. There are lots of special buses that travel from outside areas to the Hollywood Bowl. This is to cut down on the traffic.
Here are details about the park & ride program.
You could take a park and ride and since they don’t go all the way to Anaheim, find a cab/uber to Anaheim.
It will definitely help to walk back to the Hollywood and Highland area, or use a park and ride to get partway. The Bowl can be AWFUL when a concert gets out.
There is special section just for Lyft or Uber pickup after a concert at the Hollywood Bowl, so it should not be too hard to get a ride.
You can also walk from there and get back to Hollywood Blvd and get a ride from there.
It is total chaos at the end of a concert, so take it slowly!
