Final Update, 7:30 a.m.: The vehicle has been removed from tracks. Blue and Expo Line trains are resuming normal service, though customers can expect residual delays through 8:15 a.m. If your trip was impacted by this morning’s incident, please call Customer Relations for delay verification at 213.922.6235.
There is currently no Blue or Expo Line service between Pico and 7th Street/Metro Center Station due to a car blocking tracks. While Metro personnel and law enforcement work to remove the vehicle, trains will travel as far as Pico Station and turn back towards Santa Monica or Long Beach.
Bus shuttles are in service between LATTC/Ortho Institute and 7th/Metro. To help reduce train congestion in the downtown area, some northbound Blue Line trains are turning back southbound to Long Beach at Washington Station.
