The Metro Freeway Service Patrol (FSP) is a congestion mitigation program managed in partnership with Metro, CHP and Caltrans on all major freeways in Los Angeles County and is the largest of its kind in the nation performing approximately 25,000 assists each month. The program utilizes a fleet of roving tow and service trucks designed to reduce traffic congestion by efficiently getting disabled vehicles running again or by quickly towing those vehicles off of the freeway to a designated safe location. Quickly removing motorists and their disabled vehicles from the freeway reduces the chances of further incidents caused by onlookers and impatient drivers. In addition, FSP helps save fuel and reduce air polluting emissions by reducing stop-and-go traffic.

The service is absolutely FREE to motorists. Simply call 511 and say “Motorist Aid” from your phone or call from a freeway callbox. The services include the following:

  • Changing flat tires
  • Jump-starting cars
  • Refilling radiators and taping leaky hoses
  • Proving up to a gallon of fuel
  • Tow disable vehicles to designated safe locations off the freeway
