At this time, we will operate our normal service Tuesday to help with essential travel although there may be rolling detours and service suspensions in locations. Please check @metrolaalerts on Twitter for updates or use the Transit app (available in both Google Play and the Apple App Store).

The curfew begins at different times in these cities, according to the L.A. County Emergency website:

As of noon Tuesday, the only change in service is:

A reminder: we are still in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic and all riders are required to wear face coverings. We absolutely respect everyone’s right to peaceful protest — and we also want everyone to be able to peaceably protest for many years to come. Be safe, folks.

We do have some maintenance-related service alerts during the day Tuesday:

  1. Tuesday I as unaware of the redline stations closed in Hollywood. A friend dropped me off at Hollywood and Vine to catch the Redline to North Hollywood Station and found I was stranded with no way to catch the train or bus home. I was afraid for my safety and the transit app didn’t show stations closed. I couldnt even get a lyft driver to pick me up until I walked up on to the side of the 101 freeway on Barham.

  2. Your bus detours Information is unclear and vague. You just state that buses are detouring around without specific route info for each individual lines and stops. How do we suppose to hop on to a bus from DTLA to other destinations when they are not following the original route and lack of detour info? Also I attended the march in DTLA today and everything were very peaceful overall. Why would you decide to close some of the stations even there’s no significant safety concerns towards passengers and your employees? It doesn’t make any sense at all especially the 7MC station. And even the situations are bad on the streets, there shouldn’t be a problem to those underground transfer stations (7MC and Union station) for passengers transferring while closing the station entrances if needed.

    • Hi Metro Rider;

      We try to stick as much as we can to the regular route. The challenge for us is in these instances we have little time to create and distribute maps. I know with rear door boarding it’s more difficult to ask the bus operator about the route but many will help if you ask. As for the station closures, we work with law enforcement and the general rule is that if there is a situation on the street, the station is likely to be closed. Obviously not ideal, especially when the protests are peaceful. But it has been a difficult week and I think everyone is acting with an abundance of caution with public safety in mind.

  3. Curious question: is construction actiivity of the future Rodeo Station on Wilshire Blvd. being impacted by the curfew in Beverly Hills?

    • I’d have to check but I know the constructon work was taking place during regular hours.
