Here are the June service changes to Metro's bus schedule, including more frequent mid-day service on the Orange Line

A few readers have asked recently about the service changes to Metro’s bus schedules that will take effect on June 23. They were just posted on metro.net earlier this week. Here they are:

Starting June 23, Metro is making minor changes to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your bus service. For complete details, look for revised timetables on metro.net or on buses during June.

Line Line Name Proposed Service Changes
40 Downtown LA – South Bay Galleria via MLK Bl – Hawthorne Bl Minor route and stop changes due to upcoming implementation of the Broadway Streetscape Plan. Southbound buses are routed via Spring St from 1st St to 11th St, then over to Broadway and regular route.
30/330 Pico/Rimpau-Downtown LA-Indiana Station via Pico Bl & East 1st St Minor route and stop changes due to upcoming implementation of the Broadway Streetscape Plan. Southbound buses are routed via Spring St from 1st St to Pico Bl, then regular route.
290 Olive View Medical Center – Sunland via Foothill Bl Line 290 is renumbered Line 90. Passengers may now board a Line 90 bus with continuous service to and from Olive View Medical Center. A minor route improvement near Olive View Medical Center also allows southbound buses to serve the new Olive View Community Mental Health Center.
603 Glendale Galleria-Grand Station via Hoover St, Rampart Bl & San Fernando Rd Minor southbound reroute to Alvarado St from Westlake Av between 6th and 7th Sts. Passengers may board Line 603 on Alvarado St at Wilshire Bl.
Orange Line Chatsworth Station – North Hollywood Station Weekday mid-day service will be improved from every 10 to 8 minutes. Also late night service will have minor improvements.

In addition, minor changes have been made to many lines not listed above. Please check for revised timetables on metro.net, or on buses.

The City of Los Angeles is launching the Bringing Back Broadway project which will reduce traffic by one lane in each direction on Broadway in Downtown LA for sidewalk improvements between 1st and 11th streets. To reduce bus congestion and ensure bus schedules are maintained, Metro moved the southbound buses on Lines 30/330 and 40 from Broadway to Spring St. Lines 45 and 745 will remain on Broadway in both directions. Once the streetscape plan is complete on Broadway, all northbound lines will have major stop changes. Consult a timetable or visit metro.net just prior to Sunday June 23 schedule changes.

  1. “Orange Line Chatsworth Station – North Hollywood Station Weekday mid-day service will be improved from every 10 to 8 minutes. ”

    To be clear, midday service will only be improved between Chatsworth and NoHo? It only mentions Chatsworth – NoHo. No Warner Center improvements being made, I assume? Chatsworth midday is currently every 20 minutes, not 10. Will it be reduced to 8 minutes, or will it be reduced to 16 minutes? I am quite confused.

  2. Wait, what happened to the minor change of lines 169 and 222 on weekends? Line 222 was proposed to operate all the way to Sunland as a weekend extension of line 169.

  3. Presumably, Line 90/91 will still go to downtown LA from the usual Glendale stops, correct? Also, with the heavy ridership on these lines why aren’t there more buses? The buses are always full to capacity and there seems to be abundance of 94 and 83 buses. The Glendale riders deserve better service.

  4. I have to agree with the 90/91 comment. The service on this line needs to be more frequent. So many times I have been left on the corner waiting for the next one because the bus is over crowded.
    Also, I think Metro needs to bring the 720 buses that terminate at Westwood up to the UCLA campus. I think it’s a good idea and so many people end up walking up Westwood to work at there jobs on the campus or at the Ronald Regan Hospital ( like I do).

  5. So….does this mean that the 90/91 will become an extension of the 290 on both weekdays and weekends and if so, does that mean there’s no more layover on Foothill?

  6. Oh…nearly forgot…why aren’t you guys doing ANYTHING about Line 169? My husband has to take that bus to work every morning and I hate to bitch but it’s like a daily crapshoot…sometimes it shows, sometimes it doesn’t and when it does it’s usually late. This is during the week (and sometimes on weekends despite the fact that it’s really the 90)…the fact that it only runs once an hour makes the headaches even worse and unfortunately my husband’s job is suffering for it. I know you lot don’t really give a rat’s behind about this end of LA but could you at least act like you do and please try to improve the service a little? Nothing worse than taking the early bus in order to be to work on time only for it not to bother showing up and being late because of it. My husband’s stop is nearly at the beginning of the bus’s route so there is absolutely no excuse for this stupid thing to be late or to not show up at all. He’s been putting up with this silliness for nearly 6 years now and if he ends up losing his job because of this bus and it’s history of no shows…well, let’s just say I wouldn’t wanna be in your shoes. Thanks much and happy motoring….

  7. 90/91 should add more busses, a lot of time waiting for them and a lot of people. WORST SERVICE, I miss the 290, it used to go 2 busses every hour, now only 1 every hour.
