Service alert: Gold Line back in working order

The Gold Line is back operating on both tracks with no delays.  Problem that required trains to single track at the Highland Park Station, causing 20 minute delays, is resolved.

What was happening: Gold Line trains were running every 20 minutes due to technical difficulties with an overhead catenary wire at the Avenue 60 crossing near Highland Park. Metro substituted  longer trains to provide additional capacity for the afternoon commute.  At the Highland Park Station, trains in both directions made use of the northbound tracks (labeled Pasadena-Sierra Madre Villa). Trains were holding at Southwest Museum Station and Mission Station to allow for trains in opposite directions to clear switches.

Service alert: Reduced speeds on Blue, Gold and Green lines due to extreme heat

Effective immediately, speed on the Blue, Gold and Green lines will be reduced to a maximum of 45mph until 8pm due to the extreme heat today

This is only precautionary measure to ensure the safety of patrons.

Speed reductions may result in a 5-10 minute delay.

A determination will be made by noon tomorrow as to whether a similar speed restriction will be warranted on Tuesday.

Metro apologizes for the inconvenience.

Service alert: Gold Line trains running every 20 minutes
