The 11th Annual L.A. Triathlon is carving through the city this Sunday and along with it comes street closures and bus detours.

The following Metro bus lines will be on detour starting at 3:30am until the streets are reopened late Sunday afternoon : 14, 16, 18, 20, 26, 28, 33, 37, 51, 52, 53, 55, 60, 62, 66, 70, 71, 76, 78, 79, 81, 96, 105, 200, 204, 206, 207, 210, 212, 217, 305, 439, 444, 445, 460, 485, 487, 534, 550, 603, 720, 733, 754, 757, 760, and the Silver Line.

If your Sunday travels involve one of these lines, take note of temporary signage near bus stops and account for up to 40 minutes of additional travel time. Also note that detours are subject to change.

If possible, Metro encourages patrons to use Metro Rail to avoid delays – all rail lines will be running on normal Sunday schedules with the exception of the Blue Line. Due to planned Expo Line construction the Blue Line will not be running between 7th Street/Metro Center Station and Washington Station.

The weekend Blue Line bus shuttles between these two stations will also be affected by the triathlon.

Passengers headed south from 7th Street Metro Center will need to take the Red/Purple Line to the Pershing Square Station where bus shuttles at 5th/Hill will bring passengers to the Blue Line Washington Station. There passengers can board the train to continue their journey.

Those Blue Line customers headed to downtown Los Angeles must disembark at Washington Station and take a bus shuttle to Pershing Square Station. There will be not stop at 7th Street/Metro Center due to street closures, but a stop at Olive/7th will be made for those who don’t need to transfer to the Red/Purple Lines.

Please note that roads will be closed off and blockaded completely, meaning no one can cross even if there is a break in the race. Patrons wishing to cross Grand Ave. and Olive St. in downtown Los Angeles should take the Red/Purple Line from Pershing Square Station to 7th Street/Metro Center Station.
