With the winter storm underway, we want you to know what we are doing to keep you safe.
We have activated our inclement weather plan –– here’s what that means:
- Over the past few days, we have been preparing for the storm: clearing out drains, deploying generators, pumps and sandbags, checking for low-hanging tree branches, pre-positioning utility and tow trucks, and placing floor mats at underground station entrances.
- All our bus and rail operators are practicing extra vigilance when looking for possible street flooding or storm debris on the rail lines.
- We have crews, including extra mechanics, strategically positioned across LA County so they can provide a rapid response should any issues develop.
- Our Metro Ambassadors have been deployed to all major transfer hubs, including Union Station, 7th Street/ Metro Center station, our new Regional Connector stations and Willowbrook/Rosa Parks station to assist customers with storm-related information and wayfinding. They are also supporting customers riding our buses, particularly along the J Line.
- Our homeless outreach teams are warning those experiencing homelessness of the upcoming weather conditions and helping connect them with the city and county shelters and services.
The storm is expected to pick up over the afternoon and over Monday, February 5. If you’re worried about driving in the storm, consider riding Metro.
