Metro Service Changes, Beginning Dec. 10th

December 7, 2023

    Hi Mooviters, 

    Metro is updating service this Sunday!


    • Increased frequency for all light rail lines: A, C, E, and K lines.
    • Added later trains for the A and E lines.
    • Metro is making changes to several bus lines.

    Moovit is updated, plan your week with our trip planner, and check line view for updated timetables. 

    Here are the details:

    A and E Lines

    For the first time, weekday peak hour trains (5 to 9 a.m. and 3 to 7 p.m.) on the A Line (Long Beach to Azusa) and E Line (Santa Monica to East Los Angeles) will operate every eight minutes instead of the current 10 minutes. Trains will operate every 10 minutes instead of 12 minutes during weekdays at midday and Saturday/Sunday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Two additional trains will be added to the nightly schedule in each direction, extending service by an extra 40 minutes each night on both weekdays and weekends. Last A Line trains will depart APU Citrus (Azusa) and Downtown Long Beach at 11.45 pm nightly, with last E Line trains departing Downtown Santa Monica 11:54 pm and East LA (Atlantic) at 12:18 a.m. nightly.

    C and K Lines

    Improvements in frequency will also be made to the C and K Lines, as weekday midday trains will operate every 10 minutes instead of 12 or 15 minutes. Saturday/Sunday C Line service will also increase to every 10 minutes instead of every 15 minutes. However, K Line trains will operate every 20 minutes on Saturday and Sunday due to construction and testing work through May 2024 to connect the C and K Lines and the forthcoming LAX/Metro Transit Center Station, set to open in late 2024. K Line weekend frequency is planned to increase to 10 minutes as soon as these works are completed.

    Bus Service

    Metro is also making changes to several bus lines, including schedule adjustments to improve on-time performance and added trips on some lines to provide more room on lines where ridership has increased. There are six weekday, 14 Saturday, and 24 Sunday Metro bus lines that have exceeded pre-COVID ridership levels as of September 2023. A small number of lines have route changes to more conveniently connect people to their destinations or other transit lines and to address the impacts of construction.
