Reason: CicLAvia - April 2014

To avoid bus delays & detours: Use Metro Rail to travel through and around impacted areas. In anticipation for increased Metro Rail ridership and bicycles for CicLAvia, Metro Rail will operate more frequently and run with longer, rush-hour length trains for the event and continue thru the evening:

  • Red & Purple Lines will each run every 10-12 minutes (increased service) with 6-car (full length platform) trains.  This means combined service every 5-7 minutes between Union Station & Wilshire/Vermont.
  • Gold Line will run every 7-8 minutes (regular Weekend schedule) with mostly 3-car (full length platform) trains.
  • Blue & Expo Lines will run every 12 minutes (regular Weekend schedule) with 3-car (full length platform) trains.
  • Green Line will run every 15 minutes (regular Weekend schedule) with 2-car trains.
  • Expect limited bike rack availability on Orange Line. Use adjacent bike path where available.
  • Extra staff will be present to assist customers at select stations throughout the route.
  • Anticipated stations to be busiest include Union Station (Red, Purple, Gold), 7th St/Metro Ctr (Red, Purple, Blue, Expo), Wilshire/Vermont (Red, Purple), Wilshire/Western (Purple).  
  • Consider using other nearby stations along the route to avoid potential wait times, including Pershing Sq (Red, Purple), Westlake/MacArthur Park (Red, Purple), Vermont/Beverly (Red), Wilshire/Normandie (Purple). 
  • Use entire platform length when boarding for more seating and bike space availability.  Large groups should separate and enter through different doors to reduce crowding and delays.
  • Board with bikes using doors marked with yellow decals.
  • Always walk your bike within Metro stations or onboard trains.
  • For everyone's safety, do not bring bikes on escalators; use the stairs or elevators instead.
  • Elevator priority will be given to passengers with disabilities.
  • Do not use emergency exit gates at turnstiles except during emergencies or unless directed by law enforcement or Metro personnel.
  • Observe all Bikes on Metro guidelines.
  • Here are some Safe Bicycling Tips.
