It's 1:46 a.m. in the Bat Cave, the secret location for Safe Rides. After four hours of videos, soda and pizza, and trying to sample all 39 flavors from a jar of jelly beans, the tired teens--three boys and three girls--prepare to call it a night. "I'm sick of jelly beans," Kelly Twarowski, a junior at Canyon High, blurts out. "Hey, the yellow ones with red spots are good," counters classmate Mike Meyer. Suddenly, the phone rings. Everyone becomes quiet. "Hello, Safe Rides," Twarowski answers.

As they have done for the past 26 years, Valley residents will again be able to take county-sponsored shuttles to the Hollywood Bowl during the summer season. Shuttles will be available starting June 23 at designated parking lots in Chatsworth and Sherman Oaks, where riders can leave their cars, said Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich. The fee is $2.50 each way. A uniformed Los Angeles Philharmonic security guard will be on site during operation times.

Do you want to take the bus to your bridge game? To basketball practice? Next month, Thousand Oaks residents will be able to wave down a "Smart Shuttle," a bus that travels a fixed route but can leave the beaten path when passengers want to make an undesignated stop. Thousand Oaks will be the only city in the county to have such a system, though other cities have buses that veer from the fixed route with 24 hours' notice.
