The service zones for Metro’s new pilot partnership with Via were expanded last week from the original six square miles to double or triple that — see the maps below. Via’s service, which launched in January, operates on-demand rides to and from Metro’s North Hollywood, El Monte, and Artesia stations.
And this: rides on Via are free and will be until at least July! Check out Via’s app to get more detailed information on the exact zone boundaries or call Via’s live customer care center at (619) 731-0710. For more information about the pilot, go to www.metro.net/via.
•The North Hollywood service area has expanded to 13 square miles. Customers in the zone can now take a Via to Metrolink’s Burbank Airport – South station and Metrolink’s Burbank – Downtown station.
•The El Monte service area has expanded to 23 square miles and customers in the zone can now take a Via to Metrolink’s El Monte station as well as Metro’s El Monte station.
•The Artesia service area has expanded to 19 square miles and four additional Metro stations have been added (Avalon, Willowbrook/Rosa Parks, Long Beach Blvd. and Compton Stations). Customers in the zone can now take a Via to any of these Metro stations, allowing riders to connect from a Via to the Green Line or the Blue Line.
