Due to vital track maintenance, there will be limited nighttime train service on the Metro Blue Line between Willowbrook Station and Downtown Long Beach Station beginning Sunday, October 27 through Wednesday, October 30. The maintenance is a continuation of last week’s track tampering, which levels and strengthens the tracks, ensuring durability as well as a smooth ride for train passengers.
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.

Surely that’s track tamping, not “tampering”?
Both words are correct, tampering is a legit process and not just people messing around!
