Gold Line resuming normal service with residual delays through rush hour

UPDATE 6:15pm

The Metro Gold Line is beginning to resume normal service, with residual minor delays through the end of rush hour. Trains are once again running between East LA Civic Center and Atlantic Station, and the signal issue at Sierra Madre Villa Station has been resolved.

Thank you to all Gold Line customers for your patience this evening, and have a safe and happy Independence Day Weekend.

UPDATE 5:30pm

Delays on the Metro Gold Line are now major due to ongoing signal issues at Sierra Madre Villa Station and a train-auto incident at Atlantic Station.

Service is currently suspended between East LA Civic Center and Atlantic Station as crews work to clear the tracks of debris. Shuttle buses have been requested for alternate service between the two stations. All trains traveling toward East LA will turn back to Union Station at East LA Civic Center.

The Metro Gold Line is currently experiencing delays of 20 minutes due to signal issues at Sierra Madre Villa Station.

The signal issues have been affecting the line for about an hour, but the problem has recently been isolated to one platform. This means trains are sharing a single platform for arrivals and departures at Sierra Madre Villa, and that some north-bound trains are turning back to Union Station/East LA at Allen station to relieve congestion on the line. Trains traveling northbound to Pasadena may be required to hold for a few minutes, due to train traffic ahead.

Metro would like to thank all Gold Line customers for their patience, as we work to resolve the problem as soon as possible.

  1. Delays up to 20 minutes isn’t even close. Thank You Metro for making my 35 minute wait for a Northbound train extra special today. I especially appreciated never being able to hear the announcements at Union Station since most people making the announcements were either mumbling or speaking as quite as a whisper or didn’t annunciate their words.
