Metro will run normal weekday service this Veterans Day


Metro will be operating regular bus and train service on Veterans Day, Friday, Nov. 11, with the exception of a few bus detours for Veterans Day parades.

For details on detour information, see Metro’s planned service advisories page.

Additionally, a limited amount of commemorative Veterans Day TAP cards can be purchased at one of our Metro Customer Centers and at the Blue Line Pacific Coast Highway Station – look for the special TVM header.

Metro would like to wish a happy Veterans Day and thank all the brave heroes who have served our nation!

Metro also held a Veteran’s Appreciation Lunch on Thursday. From Metro CEO Phil Washington:

Today, I was proud to join Metro Chair John Fasana and Metro Board Member Jacquelyn Dupont-Walker to host the 2nd Annual Metro Veterans Luncheon at Division 13. It was a wonderful ceremony recognizing our Veterans with over four hundred Metro Veterans and guests in attendance…Metro has over 500 veterans within our ranks holding positions virtually everywhere – from operators and mechanics, to security, to the Chief Executive Officer. It truly is an honor to serve alongside these men and women now in our civilian jobs building and maintaining the greatest transportation agency in the world.

  1. Because the 11th was a holiday, Thursday, effectively became like a Friday. I went to a concert in DTLA on Thursday evening. I left not really late for what would have been a Friday night. But wound up catching the last train out of DTLA. Fortunately there was data coverage on the Red Line platform and I knew that I could make the connection to the last train out. Otherwise I would have be in a bad way (all of the bus lines going my way had long before stopped.) Metro should look at running late trains the day before Veteran’s day and Thanksgiving, etc. The train I was on had a good number of people on it. (By no means packed, but it was also 2 cars long.)
