Above are the Metro bus service changes as currently proposed to take effect in June or after. The changes were proposed by Metro staff and then approved, rejected or amended by the five different Metro Service Councils that consist of riders and citizens.
The changes are going to the Metro Board of Directors at their April 28 meeting as a receive-and-file item although Board Members can introduce a motion or motions to vote on changing what is proposed.
A few items of note:
•The 460 bus remains unchanged and will continue to run between downtown Los Angeles and Disneyland.
•Line 190/194 will be discontinued by Metro and taken over by Foothill Transit, which will honor all Metro fare media for at least one year and add one late night trip on the 190.
•The northern part of the 270 between El Monte Station and Monrovia will be discontinued by Metro and taken over by Foothill Transit. The southern part of the 270 between El Monte Station and Norwalk will continue to be operated by Metro.
•Lines 734 and 788 will both be extended from Westwood to the Expo Line’s Sepulveda/Expo Station after the rail extension opens.
•Line 704 on Santa Monica Boulevard will operate every 15 minutes during midday on weekdays instead of every 20 minutes.
•On Line 485, service will be discontinued between Cal State LA and downtown Los Angeles (due to extremely low ridership); riders can use the Silver Line between Cal State L.A. and DTLA. The 485’s route north from Cal State LA will remain as is but be renamed as the 258.
•Line 258 will be routed to Cal State LA and then continue north on the 485’s route to Pasadena and Altadena. This will provide a connection between Paramount, Cal State LA and Pasadena. This will be known as Line 258.
