Upcoming Service Advisory: Expo Line to run every 20-30 minutes this weekend for station work

Update: The work planned for this Saturday, September 20 will also take place this Sunday, September 21. As on Saturday, Expo Line trains will run every 20-30 minutes until close of service, with trains sharing the Downtown Los Angeles-bound track at Jefferson/USC, Expo Park/USC, and Expo/Vermont Stations. Specific departure times for this Sunday from 7th Street/Metro Center and Culver City stations can be found on our Service Advisories page.

It’s rare to find a weekend in the fall when the Expo Line is not flooded with football fans on their way to the Coliseum. That’s why, with no game this Saturday, Metro will perform needed work on the platform canopies at Expo Park/USC Station.

Trains on the Expo Line will run every 20 to 30 minutes from open to close of service, sharing the Downtown-Los Angeles bound track between Jefferson/USC and Expo/Vermont Stations. For specific departures times from 7th Street/Metro Center and Culver City Station, please see our Service Advisories page.

NexTrip will be updated with accurate departure times for all other Expo Line stations. For up-to-the minute service alerts, follow us on Twitter @metrolosangeles and @metroLAalerts.

  1. Washington Metro does track work on weekends and holidays when DC is flooded with visitors and tourists.

  2. Why are repairs needed so soon on a relatively new station? When did Expo line open? Sounds like shoddy construction.

  3. Thanks – maybe next time there’s a weekend free for maintenance, you could look into improving train synchronization with traffic signals – the Expo Line really crawls along at a snail’s pace between USC and Metro Center.

    • Send a message to Mayor Garcetti about that. If he leaned on LADOT it would happen.

  4. Pity Metro doesn’t give the kind of consideration to music lovers that it gives to football fans: virtually every weeknight during the Hollywood Bowl season (and the Tuesday and Thursday Evening classical concerts are what the Bowl is all about: bringing the masterpieces of the past five centuries of western music to the common folk of Southern California, regardless of race, creed, political affiliation, or economic status), the Red Line has been single-tracked (and it’s been that way for year after year). Maybe more people would take Metro to the Bowl if Red Line maintenance could be shifted to periods when the Bowl is dark.
