Service Alert: Green Line major delays through rush hour

FINAL UPDATE 6:44 p.m.: Signal issues at Lakewood and Norwalk Station have been resolved. Metro Green Line is resuming normal service at this time, though trains may experience residual delays for the next 20 minutes. Extra shuttle bus service between Lakewood and Norwalk has been cancelled. Metro greatly appreciates the patience of all Green Line customers affected by this evening’s delays.

UPDATE 6:08 p.m.: Signals at Lakewood and Norwalk Station have been partially restored, reducing service delays to fifteen minutes within the incident area. Trains may experience residual delays along the rest of the Green Line.

The Metro Green Line is currently experiencing major delays due to signal issues between Norwalk and Lakewood stations that began around 4:45 p.m. this evening.

As a result of the signal issues, trains are moving through the incident area at reduced speeds. Some Norwalk-bound trains may turn back towards Redondo Beach to relieve congestion caused by trains slowing as they approach Lakewood.

Metro has requested supplemental shuttle buses for extra capacity between Norwalk and Lakewood stations. Customers traveling between Downtown Los Angeles and Norwalk Station should consider using Metro Express 460 to avoid delays. Metro Express 460 connects Flower/7th St (7th St/Metro Center), and uses the I-110 Harbor Transitway and I-105 HOV lanes to Norwalk Station.

Metro will provide updates on this incident as they become available. For up-to-the-minute status updates, follow Metro on Twitter @metrolosangeles or @metroLAalerts.

  1. Line 460 costs extra for those who don’t have the proper freeway passes. The last stop in which you can get on the Anaheim bound 460 is at Manchester. This will catch people off guard if they are waiting at the 105/110 Station. This line does not run as often as the Green & Expo Lines.
