Metro Rail service advisories, August 10 – 16

Multiple rail lines will experience maintenance scheduling this week due to station closures, trains sharing one track and mid-day/late-night maintenance. For our customers who like to plan ahead and stay informed on the latest, here’s what to expect starting today, August 10, through Sunday, August 16.

As it’s been for the last few months, Gold Line morning and mid-day maintenance started today through Friday from 9:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. with trains operating every 15 minutes along the entire line. Trains will share one track at Allen Station as crews work to repair overhead wires that were damaged this past April. All of this is being done to provide a safe and reliable rail service. The Good News: crews are near the tail end of their work and are aiming to finish by the end of this month!

Tuesday, August 11 through Thursday, August 13 more signal system upgrades will occur on the Metro Green Line. After 9 p.m., trains will operate every 20 minutes and share one track at Mariposa and El Segundo. In addition, the Green Line will follow a 20 minute schedule this Saturday from start of service until Sunday close of service. Trains will share one track at the same locations, so please listen to station announcements for proper boarding instructions.

Artesia-Del Amo bus shuttle

Artesia and Del Amo Station are next up to close this weekend as part of the Blue Line Upgrades Project. After 9 p.m. Friday, August 14 through Sunday, August 16, bus shuttles will replace Blue Line service between the two stations. This means all trains originating in Long Beach traveling northbound will stop at Wardlow and return south. Trains originating from 7th Street/Metro traveling southbound will stop at Compton and return north. Customers wishing to travel to Artesia or Del Amo Station will need to board the Metro bus shuttles labeled “Blue Line Shuttle” in order to complete their trip.

And finally, this Friday after 9 p.m. through Sunday close of service, bus shuttles will also replace Expo Line service in order for crews to work on signal systems at Culver City. The closure is neccessary so that trains can transition smoothly when entering and exiting stations. Customers who need to travel between La Cienega/Jefferson and Culver City can board Metro bus shuttles labeled “Expo Shuttle” to do so.
