Good News – Metro Silver Line Launches Expanded Late-Night Service Friday, Aug. 17


Tuesday August 14, 2012

And now, more good news: The Metro Silver Line will begin running expanded late-night service starting this Friday, Aug. 17. The Silver Line busway will operate until approximately 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights, with the last bus departing Artesia Transit Center at 1:56 a.m. and El Monte Bus Station at 2 a.m. This new service schedule is a welcome addition to the extended late-night rail service which began three weeks ago.

Ridership from midnight to close of service has jumped 50 percent since Metro began operating late-night weekend service on its rail lines and the Metro Orange Line, prompting Metro officials to add the Metro Silver Line to the ranks. The Silver Line connects downtown Los Angeles to the San Gabriel Valley and the South Bay. The new late-night service will offer transit riders from these areas a new option to help them explore, as well as connect them to the rest of the Metro system, making it easier than ever to get around in the wee hours of a late weekend night.

So get on those buses and trains, and don't be afraid to stay out past midnight. Now more than ever, Metro is there for you.
