Work to upgrade the Green Line’s signaling system continues this weekend, requiring full track closure and bus shuttles between Long Beach Boulevard and Norwalk Station. While crews perform the work, the following service changes will be in effect:
Beginning Friday, February 19 after 9 p.m. through Sunday, February 21 close of service, the last stop for all eastbound trains will be Long Beach Blvd Station. Customers wishing to reach Lakewood or Norwalk must board free Metro Green Line Shuttles in order to do so.
Train service will continue westbound from Long Beach Blvd to Redondo Beach Station. Regular service to all stations will resume Monday morning.
Green Line trains are slated to arrive every 15 minutes during the day and every 15-20 minutes at night throughout the weekend. However, customers should note that trains will not follow the times listed in the regular, posted schedule.
On Friday evening, the last complete trips from Redondo Beach to Norwalk will depart at approximately: 7:20, 7:40 and 8 p.m. The last complete trips from Norwalk to Redondo Beach will depart at approximately: 8:30, 8:50 and 9:02 p.m.
As for when and where to TAP while bus shuttles are in effect: eastbound customers transferring from Long Beach Blvd Station to bus shuttles will not need to TAP. Those transferring from westbound bus shuttles to Long Beach Blvd Station will need to TAP at the fare gates.
Finally, we’d like to thank customers who may be inconvenienced for their patience and understanding as the upgrades will allow for better train movement and ultimately result in a safer and more reliable Green Line.
