Green Line Update: train service to all stations will resume Saturday, Aug. 25

FINAL UPDATE: repairs have been completed and Green Line will run regular service on Monday, Aug. 27.

UPDATE, 1 a.m. Aug. 25: Service to all stations will resume with start of service on Saturday, Aug. 25. Trains share one track between Vermont/Athens and Crenshaw/105 as repair work continues. Trains will run every 15 minutes, and bus shuttles will no longer be in service.

UPDATE, 2:50 p.m.: Bus shuttles will remain in service between Hawthorne/Lennox and Vermont/Athens through the afternoon rush hour. Metro staff is on scene and continues to assess the needed repairs to the damages caused by this morning’s tanker fire.

The Green Line is slated to run every eight minutes and shuttles will match train service as best as possible. Please allow extra travel time to transfer between the train and bus shuttles. For additional transit service in the area, consider Line 120 on Imperial Highway or these alternate routes.

At this time, repairs are likely to continue into the weekend. We will continue to update Metro’s Twitter streams (@metroLAalerts and @metrolosangeles) and The Source.

UPDATE, 2 p.m. See the above photos, which show the damage to the overhead wires.

UPDATE, 9:45 a.m.: buses continue to replace Green Line train service between Hawthorne/Lennox and Vermont/Athens until further notice due to earlier tanker fire on the 105 freeway. There is damage to sections of the overhead power supply system from the fire. Once the Los Angeles Fire Department releases the incident area, Metro staff will be able to evaluate the damage and begin repair work.

Plan ahead for your evening commute. For additional transit service in the area, consider Line 120 on Imperial Highway or these alternate routes.
