Parking–Metered parking is available along South Coast Highway and Glenneyre St. as well as all cross streets throughout the HIP District. Parking meters have various time limits. Read them carefully before parking. Enforcement is from 8am-7pm, after 7pm it’s FREE. All parking meters accept quarters and credit cards. With a handicapped placard, metered street parking is FREE.
Many of the HIP District’s restaurants, stores and hotels offer guest and customer parking areas but they may require parking validations, tokens or guest parking passes. Customer parking lots and garages may be located around the back or side, and sometimes may only be accessible through the alleyways. The directory listings in this brochure have parking icons P to show if that business has non-metered guest/customer parking.
Mainline “Blue Shuttle Bus” Service–The Mainline Service operates six days a week, year round. There is no service on Sundays. The Red route services the HIP District. Shuttles run approximately every hour. Blue Shuttle Bus stops are located on your map and schedules are posted at all stops.
