Green Line stations reopen Sunday

Great news for Green Line riders: work on connecting the Crenshaw/LAX Line and the Green Line tracks will be completed nearly one week earlier than scheduled. As a result, the five Green Line stations that had been closed since January (Aviation/LAX, Mariposa, El Segundo, Douglas and Redondo Beach) will reopen at the beginning of service on Sunday, April 1, and bus shuttles will no longer be running.

While work was being conducted on the rail junction between the Crenshaw/LAX Line and the Green Line, Metro used the closure to make track and signal upgrades to the Green Line to help ensure a smoother and more reliable commute.

Along with the reopening of the five Green Line stations, the LAX Shuttle G bus will no longer operate from Hawthorne/Lennox Station. The shuttle will return to its usual stop at Aviation/LAX Station. If connecting to other bus service — such as Culver City Bus — please check their current schedules.

The 8.5-mile Crenshaw/LAX Line is being built between the Expo Line and Green Line and will serve the Crenshaw Boulevard corridor, Leimert Park, Park Mesa Heights, Inglewood, Westchester and the LAX area. The project is scheduled to open in fall 2019.

Metro would like to thank all Green Line riders for their patience while the work was done!

  1. I see the Green Line’s service pattern would operate like how the Red Line did before 2006 after Aviation/96th opens

  2. Good job to Metro and their contractors for beating the schedule.
    Hopefully this is not an ‘April Fools’ announcement 🙂 ….

  3. Instead of thanking me for my patience, how about finding a way to reimburse me for the value of the approximately three working days” worth of extra time my commute took, plus the aggravation of inconsistent shuttle and train schedules?

  4. Its amazing to have ridden past that junction for years and to now see it actually be put to use. I can say “I remember when this junction was like a bridge to nowhere.”

  5. Good. It seemed that neither Culver City or the Big Blue Bus anticipated the amount of delay this would add to its northbound routes from the Green Line – not that it mattered too much to me, though; I would just wait a bit longer.

  6. I glad they’re ahead of schedule. It was tough to use the shuttle buses. It adds an extra 20 minutes to go an extra 3 stops. I would love it if they allowed an LAX stop from the Green Line as a temporary route, but perhaps the station itself isn’t ready. Heck, the People Mover won’t open until 2023. Another bus connection to take you to the airport.
