Metro Launches Expanded Late-Night Weekend Service on all Metro Rail Lines, Metro Orange Line

Los Angeles County Supervisor and Metro Board Chair Michael D. Antonovich today joined Pasadena Councilman Chris Holden, Pasadena and Hollywood business leaders and workers, and Metro CEO Art Leahy in promoting expanded late-night Metro Rail service on all Metro Rail lines and  the Metro Orange Line starting tonight.

On Friday and Saturday nights all Metro Rail lines – Red, Purple, Blue, Gold, Green and Expo – will operate until 2 a.m.The Metro Orange Line busway will run until 2:40 a.m. to accommodate the transfer of riders from the Metro Red Line at the North Hollywood station. Depending on the line, service is being extended from 1 to 2 hours. The expanded service will promote more local business activity along the transit alignments and offer residents and workers the option to go out and use public transit late on weekend nights.

 “The new late night service on Metro Rail and the Orange Line is a win-win situation for everyone in Los Angeles County,” said Supervisor Antonovich. “Businesses will be able to reach a new range of clientele. More people can go out to eat, drink and have fun on weekends without worrying about a midnight curfew, and more workers now have the option of taking that later shift and can rest assured they’re going to have a safe, reliable way to make it home. Los Angeles County residents will benefit from the connections in the rail system, and people from the San Fernando Valley will be able to travel to other destinations in the county such as Pasadena, Long Beach, Norwalk or Culver City late at night.”

The Metro Red, Purple and Blue Lines will continue to operate at 10 minute headways from 6 p.m. until midnight then will switch over to 20 minute headways until 2 a.m. The Expo, Green and Gold Lines also will run at 20 minute headways. Orange Line buses will run at 20 minute headways between midnight and 2:40 a.m.

Metro is currently evaluating the possibility of late night service on the Silver Line express bus service from El Monte to Artesia. Metro also is working with Metrolink on the possibility of extending their service to connect with Metro Rail and the Metro Orange Line.
