Due to anticipated road closures during afternoon/evening on Thursday, April 21 and early morning Friday, April 22, Metro will experience potential delays and detours to bus service throughout the Westside region (various locations in Century City, Beverly Hills, West LA, Westwood & Brentwood).  This will impact specifically, but not limited to, Lines 2, 4, 16, 20, 28, 302, 316, 704, 720, 728 & 761 during any given period between early afternoon and late evening on Thursday and Lines 4 & 704 early morning on Friday. Metro will make every effort to operate service on regular routing when possible as street restrictions are lifted.  However, passengers are urged to allow extra travel time due to street closures and traffic congestion. 

Please see below for additional information on potential bus detours.  These detours are subject to change without notice depending on street restrictions.  Temporary signage will be posted at impacted locations where possible to direct passengers to proper boarding locations.
