UPDATE: MAP FROM CBS NEWS OF SHUTTLE ROUTE

Councilmember Tom LaBonge will be providing free shuttle bus service from the parking lot of the Greek Theatre up to Griffith Observatory for visitors who want to watch the Space Shuttle Endeavor fly over Friday morning.

Shuttle bus service will operate from 8 am-12 noon from 2700 North Vermont Ave, next to the Greek Theater. LaBonge’s office is providing the service to relieve congestion on the roads and in surrounding neighborhoods, and to make the historic flyover a safe and celebratory experience. They expect huge crowds. The Observatory will be open from 5 am.

“There have been many days of joy in the City of Los Angeles: our sports teams have brought home championships and our Olympians have taken back gold medals. But tomorrow, this flyover by Space Shuttle Endeavour is going to take the cake,” Councilmember LaBonge said. “I hope everyone gets the chance to see it.”

The Shuttle is expected to pass over Los Angeles City Hall, the Getty Center, Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Griffith Observatory, the California Science Center, The Queen Mary, the Long Beach Aquarium, Disneyland, Universal Studios, and the beaches of Malibu and Venice (and not in that order.)  The LA circuit is expected to begin around 11:30 am but NASA says times may change due to weather.
