Metro to Enhance Bus Service on Selected Lines Effective Sunday, Dec. 16
Effective Sunday, December 16, Metro will enhance service on selected Metro Bus lines by making some minor changes in an effort to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of Metro bus service.
Additional midday and weekend bus service will be added to Line 40 (Downtown LA-South Bay Galleria via MLK Blvd.) along Crenshaw Blvd. and La Brea Avenue serving the Hawthorne/Lennon Metro Green Line Station.
