Next stop: a better Blue Line.
Major improvements are almost complete for the Blue Line which is anticipated to open on Saturday, November 2 with free rides and community celebrations. For more details, please visit metro.net/aline .
Metro is investing $350 million to enhance safety, increase reliability and improve the customer experience. In addition to the new digital screens, new signage, tracks and system wiring, one of the project’s major milestones is the addition of four new crossover tracks/switches which will help reduce service interruptions. Metro thanks you as we make major upgrades to our oldest light rail line.

Flower Street Bus-only Lane Pilot
To improve service reliability and move more people through the urban center, Metro and LADOT are implementing an evening peak, temporary bus-only lane on southbound Flower St, between 7th St and 28th St/I-110 Freeway entrance. After review and study of the pilot program and its positive impacts to peak-hour traffic flow, Metro is proposing to extend the study of this weekday, Monday to Friday, evening peak-hour configuration, for five months through March 2020 , beyond the conclusion of the New Blue Improvements Project.
The pm peak bus only lane will cover 1.8 miles of Flower St between 7th St and 28th St, at the I-110 South ExpressLanes entrance.
