This Weekend: Bus shuttles replace Green Line between Vermont/Athens and Long Beach Bl

Green Line bus bridge, Nov-6-9

Metro will be conducting more improvements to the Green Line’s signaling system this weekend. In order for crews to complete the work, three Green Line stations —  Harbor Fwy., Avalon and Willowbrook/Rosa Parks — will be closed beginning this Friday, November 6 after 9 p.m. through Sunday, November 9 close of service. Normal service to the stations will resume Monday morning.

Bus shuttles will replace Green Line trains between Vermont/Athens and Long Beach Bl/I-105 Station. This means all eastbound trains will travel as far as Vermont/Athens and return to Redondo Beach. All westbound trains will return to Norwalk after serving the Long Beach Bl. Station.

Here are the service levels to expect while work occurs. As a reminder, these changes can also be found on our Planned Service Advisories page.

  • Friday, November 6, the last eastbound trains serving all stations will depart Redondo Beach at 7:40 p.m., 8 and 8:20. The last westbound trains serving all stations will depart Norwalk at 7:54 p.m., 8:12 and 8:30. After 9 p.m., trains will arrive approximately every 20 minutes until close of service.
  • Saturday and Sunday, Green Line trains will arrive every 15 minutes from open to 9 p.m., and every 20 minutes after 9 p.m. to close of service.

Metro will also provide both express and local bus shuttle service. Buses labeled “Green Line Local Shuttle” will run approximately every 10 minutes and serve all stations between Long Beach Bl and Vermont/Athens. “Green Line Express Shuttles” will make stops every 10 minutes to Long Beach Bl., Willowbrook/Rosa Parks and Vermont/Athens stations only.

Finally, we realize this weekend’s service changes may be an inconvenience, and we would like to thank all affected customers for their patience as the end result will be a safer and more reliable Metro Green Line.
