Starting this Friday evening through close of service on Sunday, there will be no train service to three Metro Blue Line stations — Florence, Firestone, 103rd/Watts Towers — in order for crews to complete track maintenance, along with debris clean-up in the area.
While this weekend’s work is in effect, bus shuttles will replace trains between Slauson and Willowbrook/Rosa Parks. This means all southbound trains stop at Slauson and turn back towards downtown Los Angeles. All northbound trains will stop at Willowbrook/Rosa Parks and turn back towards Long Beach.
Blue Line trains are slated to arrive every 12 minutes during the day and every 20 minutes at night throughout the weekend. Bus shuttles will match Blue Line service levels as best as possible. However, trips are expected to take about 20 minutes longer than usual, so please allow extra time and plan accordingly. As an alternate service, consider Metro Bus Line 55/355 which runs on nearby Compton Avenue.
Metro personnel will be on hand to lend assistance at all Blue Line stations where work and bus shuttles are in effect. Normal Blue Line service will resume with the start of service on Monday morning.
Finally, thank you to our customers for their patience and understanding as we complete this weekend’s work. These repairs and upgrades will result in safer and more reliable Blue Line service.
