Final Update: Green Line resumes normal service

FINAL UPDATE: Green Line trains are resuming regular evening intervals at this time. Metro again thanks Green Line riders for their patience this evening, and wishes all our customers a Happy Holiday

UPDATE: Power has been restored to Aviation/LAX Station, and the station’s TAP vending machines and elevator are now fully operational. Signals have been restored to most of the affected Green Line track, however issues persist in a small segment near Aviation/LAX. Trains are running with up to ten minute delays at this time.

UPDATE: A local utility provider has indicated the signal issues causing up to 20 minute delays on the Metro Green Line this evening may have been caused by a downed wire on Aviation Boulevard North of Imperial Highway. On-scene personnel are working to install a back-up generator to restore power to affected track/stations.

Trains on the Metro Green Line are currently moving at restricted speeds between Aviation/LAX and Crenshaw/I-105 Stations due to signal issues.

Customers riding the Metro Green Line should expect service delays of up to 20 minutes. Some trains may turn back before completion of their regular route in order to reduce rail congestion through the affected area. Those planning to travel to LAX should consider taking the Flyaway bus from Patsaouras Transit Plaza as an alternate to Green Line service at this time.

The signal issues have additionally caused loss of power at Aviation/LAX Station. Consequently, the station’s TAP vending machines and elevator are temporarily out of service. Customer’s departing from Aviation/LAX should load their fare and TAP at their destination station. For alternate elevator service, use Hawthorne/Lennox Station and back ride via Line 120.

Metro thanks customers for their patience as we work to resolve the signal issues as soon as possible.
