Service Alert: Green Line running every 15 min due to ongoing signal issue

Final Update: 5:00 a.m.: Automated signals have been restored on the Metro Green Line, and trains will resume running on a normal schedule.

Update 7:30 p.m.: At this time Green Line signal issues remain unresolved, however, trains are currently arriving at stations across the line every 15 minutes.

The Metro Green Line is currently experiencing up to 20 minute delays due to failure of the automated signaling system between Redondo Beach and Hawthorne/Lennox stations. The signal issue began yesterday afternoon, with delays escalating from minor to major as the affected area widened. Unfortunately, we are still working to resolve the issue.

The cause of the signal failure is currently under investigation. Metro personnel have been dispatched to signal points along the Green Line to manually direct train operators through the impacted area. Green Line customers should anticipate delays of up to 20 minutes when traveling between Redondo Beach and Hawthorne/Lennox Station, or, consider alternate routes. Some trains may return to Norwalk from Aviation/LAX to ensure sufficient train capacity on the busiest portion of the line. If traveling to LAX, consider the LAX FlyAway bus from Union Station or Expo/La Brea.

Metro apologizes for the inconvenience and appreciates your patience as we work to restore the Green Line’s full signaling system as soon as possible. For minute-by-minute service updates, follow us on twitter @metrolosangeles and @metrolalaerts.
