Metro and the city of Los Angeles are partnering to improve speed, frequency, and reliability for the over 12,000 passengers who ride buses that serve the La Brea Avenue corridor.
The La Brea Avenue Bus Priority Lanes Project is located along a 5.9-mile segment of La Brea between Sunset Boulevard and Coliseum Street. It would add bus priority lanes in both directions during weekday peak hours from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Street parking would remain available during midday, evening, overnight and weekend periods.
As a key element of the NextGen Bus Plan, bus priority lanes have been shown to improve bus speeds by 15 percent or more, thus increasing service frequency and reliability, and moving more people without having to add more infrastructure (i.e., additional traffic lanes). These bus lanes would complement the city of L.A.’s Vision Zero effort to reduce traffic injuries by reducing the need for buses to mix with vehicles in travel lanes, while also maintaining street parking for residents, businesses, and visitors to the area.
