Metro and the city of Los Angeles are partnering to improve speed, frequency and reliability for the 12,000-plus passengers who ride Metro Line 200 and DASH buses along Alvarado Street. Join us Wednesday for this virtual community meeting on Zoom to learn more about the project:

The Alvarado Street Bus Priority Lane Project is located along a 1.7-mile segment of Alvarado between 7th Street and Sunset Boulevard. The project would add a bus priority lane in the southbound direction in the morning peak hours and northbound direction in the afternoon peak hours from Monday through Friday.
As a key element of the NextGen Bus Plan, bus priority lanes have been shown to improve bus speeds by as much as 30 percent and increase reliability of bus service.
These bus lanes would complement the City’s Vision Zero effort to reduce traffic-related fatalities by reducing opportunities for speeding and weaving in and out of the curbside lane, while also maintaining midday, overnight and weekend parking for residents, businesses and visitors to the area.
All Metro meetings are accessible to persons with disabilities. Other ADA accommodations and translations available by calling 213.922.4869 at least 72 hours in advance.
