Heads up: expect bus detours and delays due to LA Marathon this Sunday

The LA Marathon returns this Sunday, Nov. 7 with a slightly different course. Though the start line is still at Dodger Stadium, the finish line will be in Century City.

Several Metro bus lines will be disrupted along the marathon route. Lines that normally travel in the area will be on detour. Check our Service Advisories page or Transit app for details and allow extra time to complete your trip. To avoid delays, consider Metro Rail where possible.

Here are the Metro Rail stations within walking distance of the route:

  • L Line (Gold): Chinatown Station, Union Station
  • B Line (Red) and D Line (Purple): Union Station, Civic Center/Grand Park Station
  • B Line (Red): Vermont/Sunset Station, Hollywood/Western Station, Hollywood/Vine Station and Hollywood/Highland Station

Pre-race shuttles for participants are available from Union Station to the Start Line at Dodger Stadium. Shuttles will depart from Bay 9 at Patsaouras Bus Plaza. Shuttles will depart from 5 a.m. to 6 a.m. on race day. Please note: there is no shuttle transportation from the Finish Line to Union Station after the race.
