Attention Gold Line Customers: Good news! The midday maintenance work scheduled the last few months from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. has been cancelled this week. This means starting today, Aug 24 through Sunday, Aug 30 all trains will operate per the regular, posted schedule.
As we’ve mentioned in previous posts, preventative repairs began in April when the overhead power supply system was damaged on the Pasadena Gold Line. So far, crews have completed repairs between Union Station and Pico/Aliso, Lincoln/Cypress and Heritage Square, and Southwest Museum and Highland Park. Repairs remain between Allen and Sierra Madre Villa, Del Mar and Allen, and Union Station and Chinatown.
As for the Metro Rail lines that will experience a change in service this week, customers can expect planned maintenance for both Metro Green and Expo Lines. On Thursday, Aug 27 after 10 p.m., Expo Line trains will run every 20 minutes and bus shuttles replace Expo Line service between Expo/La Brea and Culver City as crews perform signaling system work. Customers traveling between Expo/Brea and Culver City will need to board free bus shuttles, and should allow extra travel time in work area.
Then on Saturday, Aug 29 through Sunday, Aug 30 close of service, bus shuttles will replace Expo Line between La Cienega/Jefferson and Culver City. All Culver City-bound trains will stop at La Cienega/Jefferson and return northbound to 7th/Metro Center. Those wishing to travel between the two stations will also need to board free bus shuttles to do so.
The Metro Green Line Aviation/LAX station will close for refurbishment work at start of service Saturday, Aug 29 until Sunday, Aug 30 close of service. During this time, all Green Line trains will bypass the station and continue operating end-to-end from Redondo Beach to Norwalk. Bus shuttles will run between Hawthorne/Lennox, Aviation/LAX and Mariposa stations for customers requiring service to and from Aviation/LAX.
What that being said, Metro understands the work may be an inconvenience to some, and would like to thank all affected customers for their patience and understanding. More details on the above service changes can be found on the Planned Service Advisories page or check back here on the Source for Green and Expo Line updates.
