On Tuesday, January 9th, Metro will be hosting a workshop for agency stakeholders — including cities, transit agencies, and Transportation Management Associations in Los Angeles County — to discuss the draft Supportive Transit Parking Program (“STPP Master Plan”) Master Plan, introduced to the Board in November 2017. The workshop will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Metro Headquarters, Gateway Plaza Conference Room, 3rd Floor, One Gateway Plaza, Los Angeles, CA 90012.

Blue Line Maintenance Work from January 12-15
Beginning on Friday, January 12th at 9:00 p.m. until Monday, January 15th at the start of regular service, maintenance work will be conducted for the Blue Line in the area between Slauson and Willowbrook Stations. During this period, a bus shuttle will be offered to compensate for the lack of regular weekend train service. For more information, please contact Carlos Valdez at (213) 922-7123 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
Temporary Closure of Five Green Line Stations
On Friday, January 26th, Metro will begin work on connecting the junction of the Crenshaw/LAX Line and the Green Line. This work will require a 71-day closure of five Green Line Stations: Redondo Beach, Douglas, El Segundo, Mariposa and Aviation/LAX Station.
Service will be maintained through free bus shuttles in place of Green Line service between Hawthorne/Lennox and Redondo Beach Station during the closure. Bus shuttles will stop at all stations and run as frequently as the Green Line. For those planning to travel to LAX Airport during this period, the LAX Shuttle G bus will be temporarily relocated to operate from Hawthorne/Lennox Station.
Upcoming Public Meetings
Metro and Caltrans District 7 have some updates to share on the Westbound SR-91 Project and the I-605 Corridor Project. Community Update Meetings are scheduled as follows:
- WB SR-91 Project: January 30th (Cerritos) and January 31st (Artesia) from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Additional Blue Line Maintenance Work
Effective Saturday, December 9th, starting at 4:30 a.m. and ending at 6:30 p.m., tree trimming and track maintenance will take place for the Blue Line along Long Beach Blvd in the City of Long Beach. This means no train service will be available from Willow Station and all stops south into the Long Beach area. In place of train service, bus shuttles will be used for continued commuter service. For more information, please contact Carlos Valdez at (213) 922-7123 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
