Metro is growing,
And that’s great news for LA, because we have big plans for new rail and busway lines. More Metro is going to require some updates to keep it easy for everyone, including riders with visual impairments. So we’re adding letters to the name and symbol for all rail and busway lines.
The new lineup.
Watch for the line letter names.
You will see the addition of letters to line colors on station signage, maps , timetables, posters, our website, other digital platforms and everywhere else you find our colored dots and squares. For example, when the New Blue Improvements Project was completed, station signs and digital displays were updated to indicate that it’s now the A Line.
Unfortunately, we can’t do it all overnight.
Our plan is for all stations to have updated permanent signage within the next several years. During the transition, our riders may see both color and letter symbols throughout the system, though the service colors in use will remain the same.
During the transition, a hybrid naming system will use both the letter and the color to refer to the line. For example: the Blue Line becomes the A Line (Blue) . This hybrid system will be phased out eventually, and then we will only use the letter names everywhere on Metro.
Fares, routes and times are not changing with this name update.
Thanks for going Metro as we grow.
