Patsaouras Bus Plaza will be closed to vehicles from 8 p.m. Friday, May 16 through 4 a.m. Thursday, May 22, for renovations. Work being done will address water damage to the plaza and structures underneath and replace waterproofing, landscaping, electrical and irrigation systems.
No vehicles will be able to enter the plaza while work is being done. Pedestrian access between East Portal, Metro Headquarters and Cesar Chavez/Vignes bus stops will remain open.
Metro buses that normally enter the plaza will stop at Cesar Chavez/Vignes to both board and drop off customers. Commuter Express 431, 534 and Bunker Hill Shuttle will pick up/drop off just west of the train tracks outside Union Station in the south segment of Union Station Roadway.
Flyaway buses will pick up/drop off passengers at Union Station West, in front of the Metropolitan Water District building.
Megabus.com will run service from the Amtrak bus pick-up/drop-off location on the west side of Union Station during the plaza closure.
OCTA bus line 701 will utilize the lot of the 420 Wellness Center–please see the notice.

In checking this morning, I noticed that there was no notice about this change on the LAX FLYAWAY site! Sheesh!
