Metro Red Line subway riders can use 11 Metro Bus lines that presently serve the Universal City and North Hollywood Metro Red Line stations to access the subway system from the Valley into Hollywood and downtown Los Angeles.

Due to limited parking at both Universal City and North Hollywood Metro Red Line stations, patrons are encouraged to use public transit to get to the new subway stations or have someone drop them off at the stations.

Serving the North Hollywood Metro Red Line station, patrons can use the following bus lines:
                        152 ( Fallbrook/Roscoe/Vineland/Burbank)
                       154 (Tampa/Burbank/Oxnard)
                        156 (Panorama City/Van Nuys/No.Hollywood) 
                        166 Lankershim/Nordhoff/Chatsworth) 
                        183/234 (Magnolia/East Colorado/Glendale/Sepulveda/San Fernando/Sylmar)  
                        426 (San Fernando Valley/Wilshire Express) 

Line 426 operates only in morning/evening peak periods, Monday through Friday. Line 154 has no Sunday service. All other lines operate seven days a week.

At the Universal City Metro Red Line Station, patrons can use the following Metro Bus lines to access the subway station:

 96 (Los Angeles/Burbank/Sherman Oaks) 
         150 (Canoga Park/Warner Center/Ventura Blvd.) 
            152 (Fallbrook/Roscoe/Vineland/Burbank)

            166 (Lankershim/Nordoff/Chatsworth) 
            240 (Northridge/Reseda/Ventura)                                 

All lines serve the bus plaza at Universal City Station expect Line 156 that stops on Ventura Blvd. at Lankershim.

In addition, MTA’s new Metro Rapid Bus Line 750 (Warner Center via Ventura Blvd.) serves the Universal City Metro Red Line Station. All service to the Universal City station operates seven days a week.

MTA is currently meeting with the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) to identify additional parking areas that might be available around both the Universal City and North Hollywood stations.

Since MTA opened the North Hollywood extension of the Metro Red Line subway June 24, ridership on the subway has nearly doubled from 65,150 daily boardings during the month of May to over 120,000 average daily boardings.
