Metro to Host Community Meetings to Discuss Plans for Operating Green Line and Future Crenshaw/LAX line

Tuesday September 11, 2018

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) invites the public to attend three community meetings in September to learn about the Crenshaw/LAX and Green Line Rail Operation Plan.

Metro staff will provide the public with several rail operation plans, including options for train frequency, routes, transfers, access to LAX and service hours to be implemented when the Crenshaw/LAX Line opens in late 2019.

As part of the Crenshaw/LAX Line project, the tracks for the new rail line have been joined with the Green Line tracks just west of the Green Line’s Aviation Station. As a result, Metro will have the opportunity to move trains between the two lines. In October, Metro staff will present several operational scenarios to the Metro Board for running rail service in the future along the Crenshaw/LAX and Green Lines.

Dates and times for the meetings are:
