Suspension of service between Sierra Madre Villa and Lake stations on the Gold Line continues Friday, as Metro crews work to repair extensive damage to the overhead power supply system and tracks caused by Thursday afternoon’s big rig truck accident on the 210 freeway.
Shuttle buses will replace trains between Lake, Allen and Sierra Madre Villa stations all day Friday, including both the Friday morning and afternoon rush hours. Trains will run every 10 to 12 minutes on the rest of the line — from Atlantic Station to Lake Station — with three-car, full platform trains.
Customers should allow for extra time in their commute, especially if they plan to catch the shuttle bus at Allen or Sierra Madre Villa stations. Those who normally park-and-ride from Sierra Madre Villa Station should consider using the Del Mar or Fillmore lots instead to avoid bus shuttle delays. Parking at Fillmore is limited. Parking at Del Mar costs $2 with proof of Metro fare (a TAP card, for example). Hint: you may have an easier time finding a space if you enter the garage from the Arroyo Parkway side.
