Limited train service will be in effect between Sierra Madre Villa and Lake stations as repairs continue on the Gold Line track damaged by last week’s freeway accident.
Gold Line trains serving Allen and Sierra Madre Villa will run every 20 minutes. Service on the rest of the line–between Atlantic and Lake Station–will be every 10 minutes. Metro will run 3-car, full platform trains throughout the day to accommodate this schedule. This schedule will remain in effect until repairs are completed.
Minor update: From 8 p.m. to close of service, the Gold Line will revert to 1-car trains.
Customers should allow for extra time if taking the Gold Line, especially if traveling to or from Allen or Sierra Madre Villa stations. Those who normally park-and-ride from Sierra Madre Villa Station should consider parking at Del Mar or Fillmore stations instead to avoid delays. Parking at Fillmore is limited. Parking at Del Mar costs $2 with proof of Metro fare (a TAP card). Tip: you may have an easier time finding a space if you enter the garage from the Arroyo Parkway side.
Please note, some trains will turn back to Union Station/East LA at Lake Station. This is necessary to reduce train bunching and keep the line running smoothly. Trains traveling between Lake and Sierra Madre Villa will be required to reduce speeds, as crews will still be working nearby on repairs to the opposite track.
Metro would like to thank everyone for their patience as we work to restore normal service. We will try to provide updates on the progress of repairs; follow Metro on Twitter @metrolosangeles and @metroLAalerts for real-time updates.
