Every six months, Metro makes some service changes to accommodate ridership demands and improve connections between Metro Bus, Metro Rail and other transit services throughout the region. The following minor route/bus stop changes and service modifications will go into effect on Sunday, June 23.

251 – All owl shortline trips ending at Broadway and Daly St will be extended to Figueroa St and Cypress Av. Late night trip frequencies will be improved from every 60 minutes to 40 minutes, from 10pm to 1am. After 1am, frequencies will continue to be every 60 minutes.

460 – Service has been improved in AM northbound direction between the hours of approximately 5:30 to 6:45am to reduce overcrowding. Buses will now operate every 16 minutes.

A number of bus lines also had minor schedule adjustments.

  1. Why no advance notice (on Metro.net) of specific changes in schedules at exact time-points–as in every prior semi-annual shake-up for at least a decade?

    BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE.

  2. Where can i find the new schedule for Route 460? I take that route every morning to work from the Norwalk station and need to know the new times. thank you.

  3. Wow these minor changes to other bus lines are really showing up with the 770 now running every 20 minutes on weekdays too. The Rapid branding used to mean a lot more than just red colored buses.

    • Looks like they also cut saturday service. Very sneaky of Metro to not publicize any of the service cuts.. Wonder what else has been cut.

  4. LILIAN: You can call MTA Customer Service and have them mail you a schedule, but it will take a couple weeks. To get one now, go to the Customer Service office on the main floor of the 26-storey tower at the east end of Union Station. In the meantime, go online (metro.net), open up the Line 460 schedule, and take a screen-shot of both your “To Work” and “To Home” schedule pages, and print them out. (If you don’t know how to do screen-shots, just jot the info down on a piece of paper.)

  5. I agree, this was the least publicized schedule change in several years. The failure to clearly post new schedules a week in advance was the greatest flaw. In addition to the above comments the bus header signs informing riders of the upcoming change were also missing this time.

  6. apparently Metro has cut some services on 770, what about weekend schedule and what is the reasons to cut services on these Rapid routes?
