Due to track maintenance that must be completed on the Metro Blue Line, there will be limited nighttime train service between Willowbrook Station and Downtown Long Beach Station beginning Sunday, October 20 through Wednesday, October 23.
Starting at 9 p.m. until close of service, Blue Line trains between Willowbrook Station and Downtown Long Beach Station will only run every 30 minutes. Customers may need to switch trains at Willowbrook Station to continue southbound to Long Beach. Regular evening service will run between 7th St/Metro Center and Willowbrook.
Announcements will be made at Blue Line stations. You can also follow alerts on Twitter or check Metro’s Service Advisories page. Please note that NexTrip may not accurately predict service at this time. Plan ahead and expect extended wait times if you need to travel that segment Sunday through Wednesday after 9 p.m.
And what kind of train maintenance is being performed, you ask? Check out the video below to see what track tampering looks like. Track tampering levels the tracks – giving train passengers a smoother ride – and makes the tracks more durable so they can go longer without repairs.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-ypDmtVgfI]
