Metro and the city of Los Angeles are partnering on the Florence Avenue Bus Priority Lanes Project along a 5.4-mile segment of Florence between West Boulevard and the Florence A Line (Blue) Station. The project will add bus priority lanes in both directions that would be used by buses during weekday peak hours from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The project will benefit riders on Metro’s Line 111, which has more than 16,500 daily boardings. It also complements the City’s vision to improve overall safety for the community by reducing the need for vehicles in travel lanes to mix with buses.
Adding bus lanes is a key element of the NextGen Bus Plan to restructure and speed up our bus system; bus lanes can improve bus speeds by 15 percent or more — making it more likely buses will stay on schedule and get riders to their final destinations and transfer points more quickly. The lanes also keep midday, evening and weekend street parking for residents, businesses, and visitors to the area.
