Ride Share to the Ford and save the hassle of parking. Drop off at the main parking lot entrance at the light on Cahuenga Blvd. East and Pilgrimage Bridge. The Ford recommends pick up at the same location as drop-off or, if heading south, further down Cahuenga Blvd. East.

Taxi drivers should be instructed to drop off at the main parking lot entrance at the light on Cahuenga Blvd. East and Pilgrimage Bridge. When you arrive, let an usher know you'll be calling a taxi at the end of the night and they will give you instructions on a safe place for pick-up.
