Metro Micro will be expanding to two new service zones in Highland Park/Eagle Rock/Glendale and Altadena/Pasadena/Sierra Madre beginning June 27 in support of the second phase of NextGen Bus Plan service changes.
NextGen is a major overhaul of Metro’s bus network and is designed to speed up bus trips and provide more frequent service on many routes. Metro Micro’s role is to help provide rides in parts of town that are challenging for fixed-route buses to serve.
With this expansion, Metro Micro will be operating in seven zones:
- Highland Park/Eagle Rock/Glendale Zone: 5:30 a.m. – 9:30 p.m., seven days a week (service begins June 27)
- Altadena/Pasadena/Sierra Madre Zone: 5:30 a.m. – 9:30 p.m., seven days a week (service begins June 27)
- Compton/Artesia Zone: 9 a.m. – 9 p.m., seven days a week
- El Monte Zone: 9 a.m. – 9 p.m., Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday
- North Hollywood/Burbank Zone: 10 a.m. – 10 p.m., seven days a week
- Watts/Willowbrook Zone: 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week
- LAX/Inglewood Zone: 5 a.m. – 10 a.m. & 2 p.m. – 7 p.m., Monday – Friday
Metro Micro rides currently cost $1 per ride (transfer not included). If you are new to Metro Micro, your first two rides are free! Visit metro.net/micro to claim your free rides.
Rides must begin and end within each zone. Riders can pay via stored value on TAP card or with a credit card. Metro Micro will continue to operate safely in these two new zones, requiring drivers and passengers to wear face masks while on board.
Additional service zones will launch in San Fernando Valley and Westwood/Century City later this year. For more information on Metro Micro, visit metro.net/micro.
