Blue and Expo line service back to normal

Regular service on the Blue Line resumed about 8:15 a.m. this morning. A lightning strike — yes, a lightning strike — caused a power disruption to the train between the Willow and Del Amo stations a little before 7 a.m. A test train ran about 8 a.m. and service resumed after that.

Delayed by Blue Line this morning and need delay verification for employer/school? Call Customer Relations at 213.922.6235 or fax them at 213.922.6988.

You can receive service alerts several ways. They’re on the homepage (which also has a mobile version), are also available through Metro’s smartphone app and they’re posted to Metro’s regular Twitter account, as well as Metro’s service alert account.

  1. I was on the 6:30am train leaving Dwntwn Long Beach Transit Mall, when we arrived at PCH Station the Operator chimed in & said that power was out between those sections. The only thing that Metro Failed in serving their customers this morning, was not having a bus bridge active & ready to go to usher everyone to an awaiting train either at Willow, Del Amo or Artesia Station.

    In short, we did not proceed until a little past 7am, making hundreds of ppl late, tardy for work & school. This is Something Metro needs to work on whenever these delays in power outages occurs to the line.
