This Weekend: Bus shuttles replace Green Line trains between Hawthorne/Lennox and Redondo Beach Station

green line alert dec 18A full closure of the tracks west of Hawthorne/Lennox Station is slated to take place on the Green Line this weekend. This means that beginning Friday night, Dec. 18 at 9 p.m., until Sunday, Dec. 20, close of service, Metro bus shuttles will replace trains at all stations between Hawthorne/Lennox and Redondo Beach.

The closure is being done to facilitate work on the future Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project. Specifically, crews are readying infrastructure around Aviation/LAX Station, which will eventually connect with the new light rail line.

If you’re planning on using transit to get to LAX this weekend, be sure to allow lots of extra time to connect with bus shuttles at Hawthorne/Lennox and the G Shuttle at Aviation/LAX Station. The FlyAway bus from Union Station or other locations is another option.

Green Line trains are scheduled to run every 15 minutes this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, as the closure is in effect and work occurs. Bus shuttles will match Green Line rail service levels, and are free for all Metro customers within two hours of tapping at Green Line TAP validators. Metro personnel will be on hand to lend assistance at all stations between Hawthorne/Lennox and Redondo Beach throughout the weekend.
