Metro transit info currently not available on Google Transit

More than a few people have noticed that Google Transit hasn’t been showing Metro transit info lately. Metro routinely sends Google revised data concerning routes and schedules, and the process of updating data is mostly automated.

In this case, there was a transfer failure and Google is working to correct the problem. It is anticipated that they will have Metro’s transit info available again by next Monday, August 26, if not before.

To help you get around in the meantime, you can contact Metro at 323.GO.METRO (323.466.3876) and speak with an agent who can assist you with your travel needs, or you can visit Metro.net and use Trip Planner.

  1. I was wondering what was happening. I thought it had to do with the latest Google Maps update for Android. Though now I see it on the browser version as well. Good to know!!

  2. I totally freaked out when it was telling me to take some strange bus line into Downtown LA from Koreatown for an hour long trip. Hope it gets fixed soon!

  3. I felt like I was going crazy, I called Google, and everything. To get to another place in LA, it was telling me to take 6 different DASH buses, my God…

  4. I’m so happy this is a real problem. I’ve been obsessed!

    It started happening, coincidently, the day I searched for DASH routes, as a curious alternate. I opened MAPS through the DASH site. Since then no METRO routes will show up on my comp, my iPhone, or my iPad.

    Super frustrated, this evening I asked my daughter to route her own trips and she got DASH too! I double-freaked thinking DASH infiltrated my entire world (DASH = CIA) .. and phased METRO out like it never existed. Conspiracy theory anyone?

    LOL. Ok I’m done. Whew!

    Unless… oh no… what if I caused this for all of LA by searching for DASH trips?

    🙂

  5. In the meanwhile I suggest using Transit App. Look it up.
    Both for Android and for iPhone

    Yesterday I felt lost without the routes on Google Maps and had to look for alternatives

  7. Today, August 25, Google recommended I take Amtrak to Anaheim and then two buses to get from Union station to long beach transit mall. It also recommended I take metro link and two buses to get from union station to north Hollywood red line station.

  8. Thank god, these dash routes are so confusing and i was wondering why metro wasnt showing up anymore. Good to know what’s going on.

  9. […] The Source reported that data for the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (CA) was not showing up on Google Maps last week. Metro attributes the problem to a “transfer failure” and says that the fix is expected today. […]

  10. metro trip planner isnt so great either. the 156 bus doesnt even seem to exist. it is directing to me to the commuter express to get to lavc. no matter what time i select.
