LA Metro Announces Changes to Bus Service – NBC Los Angeles

In an effort to improve riders’ experience on local buses, Metro is making changes to more than 50 routes, the transit agency announced on social media Friday.

According to Metro, the new changes are mainly aimed at the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys. A total of 51 lines will receive updates.

“We are making changes to a variety of bus routes to improve service based on feedback from our consumers, bus operators and data reviewed by our bus service planning and scheduling staff,” Metro said.

Metro says many of the new changes are aimed at bringing bus schedules more in line with actual journey times, which they hope will lead to shorter wait times.

“We are also slightly adjusting service levels on many bus routes to better align with ridership,” Metro added.

Tulasi Rodriguez and Luis Gomez, two of the many subway commuters living in South LA, experience safety concerns and rely on public transportation. Amber Frias reports for NBC4 News on June 11, 2024 at 5 p.m.

With the new changes, Metro is adding trips on some lines during peak hours to increase capacity and attract more riders. At the same time, Metro is canceling trips from lines with fewer passengers.

To see if their line changes, riders can check online.

According to City News Service, despite recent concerns about public transportation safety in LA, Metro reported an increase in ridership for the month of May compared to the same month last year.
