Our buses travel most major streets in the county, offering different types of service. Metro Local routes stop about every two blocks and are painted orange (some are white with yellow stripes). Metro Rapid routes are faster, because they stop only at major intersections; they are painted red. Metro Express routes travel long distances on freeway and make very few stops.
Metro Orange Line
The Metro Orange Line is a bus-only transitway running across the San Fernando Valley between North Hollywood, Warner Center and Chatsworth. Vehicles on this line are painted silver and called Metro Liners; they stop at 18 stations, operating very much like Metro Rail trains. Many bus connections are available at each station.
The Metro Blue, Green, Red, Purple, Gold and Expo lines comprise Metro Rail. There are a total of 80 stations in the system, each offering many bus connections.
Many local cities operate additional bus services in their areas. Please note that these carriers have difference fare structures than Metro.
Most Metro bus and rail lines start running around 4am and keep running until about midnight. They are less frequent in the late evening and on weekends, so check the timetables at metro.net to be sure.
On the Move Riders Club connects you to new friends who can teach you about going Metro. Learn from peers who know the ins and outs of getting around on public transportation – then take a test ride together. Club activities are tailored to each group, and can range from group sightseeing trips to one-on-one training for outings to the store, to the doctor or anywhere else you want to go.
On the Move Riders Club is now forming groups all throughout Los Angeles County. For more information or to find a club near you, contact On the Move Program Coordinator Lilly Ortiz at 213.922.2299 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're a Senior and you ride frequently, a monthly pass is probably your best value.
If you're an occassional rider, you may prefer to pay cash for each ride, and to take advantage of our 25¢ off-peak fare.
Please note that disabled and Medicare customers are eligible for all senior cash and pass fares.
