Video from news conference today at the Metro Gold Line Memorial Park Station in Pasadena: Los Angeles County Supervisor and Metro Board Chair Michael D. Antonovich today joined Pasadena Councilman Chris Holden, Santa Monica City Council member Pam O’Connor, Pasadena and Hollywood business leaders and workers, and Metro CEO Art Leahy in promoting expanded late-night Metro Rail service on all Metro Rail lines and the Metro Orange Line starting tonight.
On Friday and Saturday nights all Metro Rail lines – Red, Purple, Blue, Gold, Green and Expo – will operate until 2 a.m. The Metro Orange Line busway will run until 2:40 a.m. to accommodate the transfer of riders from the Metro Red Line at the North Hollywood station. Depending on the line, service is being extended from 1 to 2 hours. The expanded service will promote more local business activity along the transit alignments and offer residents and workers the option to go out and use public transit late on weekend nights.
