Blue Line resuming normal service with residual delays through 6:30 p.m.

Update, 6:22 p.m.: The Blue Line has resumed service to both tracks at San Pedro and Washington Station, and is attempting to recover its normal schedule after this evening’s train-auto incident. Residual delays should be expected through 6:30 p.m. On behalf of Metro, we’d like to thank all Blue Line customers whose commutes were less than perfect tonight for their patience and understanding. Please feel free to let us know your experience via Twitter @metrolosangeles or @metroLAalerts, or here in the comments.


The Metro Blue Line is currently experiencing major delays along the entire line due to a train-auto incident that occurred at approximately 4:34 p.m. this afternoon. While the incident is being cleared, trains will share the Long Beach-bound track at Washington and San Pedro Street Station.

If riding the Blue Line this evening, please allow extra time to complete your trip. A combination of the Silver and Green Lines may also be a good alternate route for some customers.

We will continue to provide updates on Blue Line service here at The Source, or, follow us on Twitter @metrolosangeles or @metroLAalerts for the latest bus and rail updates.

  1. Lately it seems like there is a major delay every day. Why does this always happen during rush hour. These peole who think they can out run a train need to be held accountable.
