Service Advisory: buses replace Blue Line trains between Firestone and Compton stations this weekend

The Blue Line 103rd St/Watts Towers and Willowbrook/Rosa Parks stations will be closed this Friday, September 7 at 9 p.m. until the end of service on Sunday, September 9. Bus shuttles will replace trains between Firestone and Compton stations. Metro will perform necessary track work on the Blue Line during the closures.

While work is in progress, all southbound trains will travel as far as Firestone Station and turn back toward 7th Street/Metro Center. The last stop for all northbound trains will be Compton Station. From there, trains will return to downtown Long Beach.

On Friday the last complete northbound trips to downtown L.A. will depart Long Beach at approximately: 7:16, 7:28, 7:42, 7:59, 8:17 p.m. The last complete southbound trips to Long Beach will depart 7th/Metro at approximately: 7:34, 7:46, 7:58, 8:10, 8:24 p.m. All times are subject to work related delays.

Trains are slated to run every 12 minutes, and after 9 p.m. trains will run every 20 minutes. Buses will match Blue Line service levels as best as possible.

Thank you for your patience as we work to improve the Blue Line. Be sure to allow extra travel time for your transfer between buses and trains. Regular service will resume on Monday, September 10.
