Metro Board Directors and Metro executives gathered this week at Arthur Winston Division 5 to celebrate the bus maintenance facility’s 100th birthday. Division 5 opened on December 30, 1912 as a streetcar maintenance facility and has been providing the city of Los Angeles with continous transit service ever since. In fact, Metro Bus 207 out of Division 5 is the longest continuously operated bus line in Los Angeles. Incarnations of Line 207 have been running since 1923.
A longer video featuring the employees of Division 5 can be found here. And for a peek at Division 5 back when it was still running streetcars, check out the movie I’ll Cry Tomorrow starring Susan Hayward (skip to 8:46 of the clip).
