    2, 4, 10, 14, 16, 18, 20, 28, 30, 40, 53, 60, 62, 66, 76, 78, 81, 102, 111, 128, 134, 150, 152, 166, 169, 180, 182, 205, 206, 210, 212, 217, 232, 240, 246, 251, 256, 267, 460, 501, 720901  

    The following lines have an adjusted number of trips to match ridership levels:  

    Weekdays: Lines 164, 179, 233, 234, 910  

    Saturdays: Lines 51, 207, 234, 910 

    Sundays: Lines 207, 234, 910  

    There are also 18 bus lines with route and/or service level changes as follows:  

    Line 16 — Eastbound between West Hollywood and Downtown LA via West 3rd Street, Line 16 will have increased service every 15 minutes instead of every 20-30 minutes between 10 p.m. and midnight weekdays and weekends to comfortably accommodate all riders travelling during this late-night period. Line 16 will also be extended east to Central Avenue in Downtown Los Angeles via 6th Street eastbound and 5th Street westbound. We’re also working to prevent Line 16 buses from bunching up on this very busy line.  

    Line 30 – With the opening of Regional Connector rail link through downtown and the new E Line rail service to East LA, all Line 30 trips will operate weekdays and weekends between Little Tokyo in Downtown Los Angeles and Pico Rimpau Transit Center via the existing route on Pico Boulevard. To avoid duplicating the new E Line service, Line 30 trips will no longer operate east of Little Tokyo to Union Station or Indiana Station via 1st Street. Line 106 will continue to serve riders on 1st Street between Indiana Station and Little Tokyo in place of Line 30.       

    Line 51 — Trips starting/ending in Downtown LA will now include stops as far west as 7th/Bixel St west of the 110 freeway for more convenient access to these stops for our riders. Other trips will continue to operate to/from the B/D Lines Westlake/MacArthur Park Station.  

    Line 78 — Trips between Arcadia and Downtown Los Angeles via Las Tunas and Huntington Dr weekends will be adjusted to operate every 20 minutes on weekends instead of every 15 minutes. This is consistent with ridership levels and the NextGen Bus Plan and maintains regular weekend service for Line 78 riders.  

    Line 92 – All trips between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays will be extended to serve the Burbank – Sylmar segment. All service to that segment will operate every 20 minutes from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., significantly reducing wait times for riders. A new stop will also be added for this line southbound on Spring Street nearside on 6th Street to improve access for riders to Downtown LA.  

    Line 111 — Line 111 will now travel to/from LAX City Bus Center via Arbor Vitae and Jetway. Line 111 will no longer serve 96th Street and Airport Boulevard due to construction impacting these streets.  

    Line 115 — Buses will turn around at Playa Del Rey via Vista Del Mar, Pacific Avenue, and Culver Boulevard — instead of using Convoy Street. This will not impact any stops but will reduce travel times for riders.     

    Line 169 — Service on weekends will extend beyond Saticoy Street/Topanga Canyon Boulevard to Canoga Station via Valley Circle. This is being done to match the weekday service and to improve access for riders to the Valley Circle area on weekends.  

    Line 177 — There will be a new terminus on Wilson Avenue northbound near Del Mar Boulevard to relocate the stop away from residential buildings. The stop is still adjacent to the Caltech campus.  

    Line 179 — Late evening trips on Huntington Drive between El Sereno and Arcadia will be extended to match daytime trips that operate between Rose Hill Transit Center and Arcadia Station, providing late evening service for riders to all Line 179 stops.  

    Line 205 — Line 205 will have the last southbound trip between Willowbrook/Rosa Parks Station, Harbor Gateway Transit Center, and Vermont/Pacific Coast Highway extended to San Pedro on weekdays and weekends to improve late-night access for riders to San Pedro.   

    Line 251 — between Huntington Park and Cypress Park/Eagle Rock via Soto Street, Line 251 will have adjusted frequencies of every 10 minutes on weekdays (every 20 minutes to/from Eagle Rock and 10-minute peak/20-minute midday service to/from C line) and every 15 minutes on weekends (every 30 minutes to/from Eagle Rock and the C line). This change aligns service with ridership levels and improves the service frequency for those customers traveling to/from Eagle Rock. 

    Lines 256 and 665 — In preparation for transferring Line 256 to Pasadena Transit the line will be altered to operate the current route between Pasadena (Sierra Madre Villa Station) and Highland Park Station. Line 665 will be extended north from Cal State L.A. via Eastern Avenue to Rose Hill Transit Center, in place of line 256, with expanded hours of service, improving access for customers to El Sereno from East LA. Metro Micro service will continue to serve the former Line 256 segment on Collis Avenue/Avenue 60 segment. Line 665 will also establish a new southern terminus at the market at Calada Street/Olympic Boulevard. 

    Line 267 — This line will extend north from Del Mar Station to also serve the Memorial Park Station area at Pasadena with new bus stops for improved connections for riders of other transit lines.   

    Line 550 — Between Harbor Gateway Transit Center and USC/Exposition Park, Line 550 will have schedule changes to improve connections with Lines 205, 246 at Harbor Gateway Transit Center.    

    Line 665 — Please see Line 256 above.  

    Line 854/L Line Bus Shuttle— This shuttle between Union Station and Pico Aliso Station began running in October 2020 when the L Line ceased service to Little Tokyo/Arts District station for Regional Connector construction. With the Regional Connector opening Friday, June 16, the new shuttle will no longer be needed.

    For riders traveling between East LA and Union Station, the new E Line will run between East LA and Santa Monica and also stop at three new underground stations in downtown LA that are part of the Regional Connector project.

    To reach Union Station and travel to northeast L.A. and the San Gabriel Valley, E Line riders can transfer to the new A Line at Little Tokyo/Arts District Station. To transfer, exit the train and board an A Line train on the opposite side of the platform.  

    This map shows our new A and E Lines.

    J Line/Line 910 — An additional trip will be added early morning on Saturday and Sunday northbound from Harbor Gateway Transit Center to El Monte Station, to improve connections with northbound Line 246.
