Friday Transportation Tips: Ride and Drive Safely this Easter Sunday

Families from all over the world gather together to celebrate Easter Sunday. If you are travelling this weekend throughout Southern California, here are some tips just for you:
  • The freeways will be busy, especially after dinner time. Check the traffic reports before you hit the road. Allow an extra 30-45 minutes. Return trips from Southwest Riverside County back into Orange County have been historically jammed after dinner from north of Lake Elsinore all the way into Anaheim Hills.
  • Churches and places of worship will be very active and busy. Allow sufficient time for parking. Get to the service at least 30 minutes before start time so you can get the most out of the services offered. If the house of worship is near a transit route and the line operates that day, consider using it.
  • Speaking of transit, if the place you’re headed to for Easter is near a train station or intercity bus terminal, see if taking the family aboard transit would work. See if the provider is offering any last minute deals.
  • If your kids are going back to school the Monday after Easter, get everything ready for Monday before you head out for the Easter festivities so you can spend some extra time for the holiday and not stress on the way home.
 Have a safe and happy Easter Sunday!
