INFO LINE OF Los Angeles transitions to "211 LA County". On July 1, 2005, INFO LINE of Los Angeles began offering access to its information and referral services via a new dialing code:  2-1-1.  Be aware that cell phones will not be able to reach 2-1-1 until the end of this calendar year.  Until then, you may continue to use the toll-free number (800) 339-6993.  For more information, visit the new website at www.211LosAngeles.org.
