War Tax Resistance Gathering • Los Angeles, California • May 4-6, 2018
For DRIVERS: do not let Google maps give you directions off Country Club Drive, which will take you to the other side of the gate.** *** Take the address directions that show “off West Pico Blvd” (a major cross street).
Union Station, downtown L.A., has Amtrak and all local metro trains and buses.
LA transit local train and bus info and “trip planning”: www.metro.net or 323-466-3876
There is no good METRO train route to our site, but it is possible to take the bus to CPUSA at 1251 S. St Andrews Place (cross street W. Pico) from Union Station
City bus instructions:
From Bus Plaza area (the bus “bay”) at Union Station, take #78 bus at Gate #6 marked “Santa Monica” (bus departs every 15 minutes) and get off at Venice Blvd and Western. Walk 2 blocks West on Venice to St. Andrews, turn right and walk 2.5 more blocks North to destination. Total travel time is 34 minutes distance is 7.5 miles. Bus stops running at 11 PM.
LAX is the best airport to use, if at all possible. Car pick-ups by local hosts will be arranged. Of course you can take a taxi from LAX, but unfortunately buses would take 1 hour and 20 minutes and you would need 3 of them to get close…
PARKING: CPUSA says we can park and double park behind their house, and people have double parked and even triple parked on the street and never been cited. (It is an odd little street, because CPSUA house is only a couple of buildings away from the corner with W. Pico, and then just past the CPSUA house, the street is gated off **** for an exclusive community of the rich called “Country Club Park”.
