Update: 6:59 a.m.: The Expo Line has restored service to both tracks at Expo/Crenshaw and Expo/Western and is working to recover its normal schedule. Customers should allow extra travel time and expect residual delays through 7:30 a.m. Metro bus shuttles have been cancelled. On behalf on Metro, we’d like to thank all Expo customers for their patience and understanding.

Update, 6:15 a.m.: Metro bus shuttles are now transporting customers between Expo/Crenshaw and Expo/Western. Customers can expect up to 20 minute delays between downtown L.A and Santa Monica. There is currently no estimated time as to when service will be restored.

Metro Expo Line service between Expo/Crenshaw and Expo/Western station has been suspended due to a vehicle blocking both tracks near St. Andrews Place and Exposition Boulevard.

All downtown Los Angeles-bound trains end at Expo/Crenshaw and turn back to Santa Monica. All Santa Monica-bound trains end at Expo/Western and turn back to downtown L.A. Bus shuttles have been requested to replace train service between the two stations.

Until bus shuttles are in effect, customers should consider using Line 102 and allow extra travel time. We will continue to provide updates here at The Source, or for live updates follow us on Twitter @metrolosangeles or @metroLAalerts.

  1. This is one of those cases where bad publicity is really bad publicity. First day of regular weekday commuter service and the whole line gets stalled by a car. #GradeSeparationGoingFoward

    • Think of the money saved by building this light rail line at-grade with the street! Now that’s foresight, Metro!!!

      • Cheap shot. The car drove over a curb and through a fence. A curb and fence is separated from the traffic for most people.
