Metro Launches Expanded Late-Night Weekend Service

Los Angeles County Supervisor and Metro Board Chair Michael D. Antonovich today joined Pasadena Councilman Chris Holden, Santa Monica City Council member Pam O'Connor, 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 immediately.

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 one to two 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.

"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," said Antonovich.
