STUDIO CITY, CA — On Memorial Day, the bustle of daily business will slow down a bit in California as swaths of government offices, banks and businesses close to observe the holidays.
The holiday, which honors men and women of the military who have died in service, was recognized as a public holiday in 1971.
In the Studio City neighborhood of Los Angeles, government offices, courts, schools, libraries, banks and post offices will be closed Monday for the Memorial Day holiday. However, garbage will be collected as usual throughout the city of Los Angeles.
Metro buses and rail lines will run on a Sunday schedule. Specific bus route schedules are available on the MTA’s website, www.metro.net. Train schedules and directions to Metrolink stations are available online at metrolinktrains.com or by calling 800-371-LINK.
On federal holidays, most banks close and transactions stop. Across California, Wells Fargo, Chase, Capital One, Bank of America, US Bank and California Bank & Trust will close.
All government offices and schools will also be closed, the courts will not be in session and the Department of Motor Vehicles will be closed.
In Studio City, as well as throughout the state, the US Postal Service will not deliver on Memorial Day. UPS will not deliver or pick up on Mondays. FedEx services will also likely be closed.
Many restaurants and grocery stores, however, will remain open to accommodate Californians on leave.
