In March at the onset of safer-at-home orders, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti relaxed parking enforcement across the city of Los Angeles as part of the emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Citations were halted for several types of parking violations to help Angelenos cope with the many impacts of COVID-19.
However, beginning Thursday, October 15, parking enforcement will fully resume across the city of Los Angeles. To avoid getting a ticket, we urge everyone to be mindful of this change.
The resumption of full parking enforcement is also important for Metro bus riders as Metro continues to evaluate and, with the city of L.A., implement bus only lanes. In just the past couple of months, lanes have been added in DTLA on 5th, 6th and Aliso streets.
Parking enforcement is key as it ensures that buses are able to fully use these bus lanes in a safe and secure manner, while minimizing unnecessary conflicts with parked or idling cars, delivery vehicles loading/unloading in the bus lane or other actions that impede the speed and reliability of our bus service.
