Metro is Everywhere.

If you live, work or play in LA County, you’re a Metro customer. That’s because we do so much more than operate bus and rail service. How do we serve 10 million people? Let us count the ways…

  • In April 2015, Metro opened an additional five miles of bus-dedicated lanes along Wilshire Blvd. Bicycles can also use these lanes.
  • We’ve also put into service 550 brand new buses that are specially designed to make travel easier for disabled passengers who depend on public transit. And Metro’s Board exercised another option to purchase an additional 350 40-foot buses.
  • Construction is underway on the pedestrian bridge from the Universal City subway station over busy Lankershim Blvd in the San Fernando Valley. Likewise, a passenger tunnel from the Red Line station in North Hollywood to the Orange Line under Lankershim also is in progress.
  • New and diverse works by nationally renowned artists have been installed at El Monte Station, and currently are being installed at stations on the Foothill Gold Line and Expo Line Phase 2.
