UPDATE: Regular D Line service between Union Station and Wilshire/Western is set to resume with the start of service on Wednesday, April 19.
Both the B and D Lines will run every 15 minutes during the day and every 20 minutes in the early morning and evenings. During the day, that means there will be trains every 7.5 minutes between Union Station and Wilshire/Vermont and in the evenings trains every 10 minutes in that section.
Thank you for your patience over the last month as we worked to connect the D Line to the future subway extension. The D Line is being extended to the Westwood/VA Hospital with the project being built in three sections. The first section from Wilshire/Western to Wilshire/La Cienega is forecast to open in 2024.
On Monday, March 20, and continuing until April 19, D Line (Purple) service will be interrupted due to construction of the Purple Line Extension Project. During this time, the D Line will only run between Wilshire/Western and Wilshire/Vermont Stations.
Transfers between the B (Red) and D (Purple) lines will be available at Wilshire/Vermont. This work begins the connection of the existing D Line stations with the new D Line Extension Project.
D Line will run as a shuttle between Wilshire/Western and Wilshire/Vermont every 20 minutes with 4-car trains. We’re single tracking on the D Line because of the work.
B Line service between Union Station and North Hollywood will run every 10 minutes with 6-car trains during midday and every 20 minutes in the early morning and late evenings. After approximately 30 days, trains will return to current service levels.
The Purple Line Extension Project will extend the subway from its current terminus at Wilshire/Western for nine miles to Westwood. The project is being constructed in three sections. The first section between Wilshire/Western and Wilshire/La Cienega is scheduled to open in 2024.
Construction is a dynamic process and information is subject to change without notice. Visit the project website for the most up-to-date information. Metro Trip Planner and 323-GOMETRO are also available to assist riders with their trip planning needs.
