Partial Green Line Closure for Two Consecutive Weeks to Complete Connections to Future Crenshaw/LAX Line

Wednesday January 02, 2019

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) will suspend its Green Line service between the Crenshaw and Redondo Beach stations beginning Friday, January 4, 2019. Work is expected to be completed by Sunday, January 20. The closure is being done to complete and activate the connection with the future Crenshaw/LAX light rail line.

The following stations will not have rail service: Hawthorne/Lennox, Aviation/LAX, Mariposa, El Segundo, Douglas and Redondo Beach. Metro bus shuttles will replace rail service between the Crenshaw station and Redondo Beach station and all stations in between.

Regular Green Line service will remain between Norwalk and Crenshaw Stations, where passengers will transfer to buses to continue their trip.

Shuttle buses will run every six minutes during weekday peak periods and every 15 minutes during midday hours and weekends. Metro recommends that passengers allow extra time for their commutes. Metro staff will be on hand to assist riders at all Green Line stations where bus shuttles will be running.

For those traveling to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), the LAX Shuttle G will operate from its usual stop at Aviation/LAX Station, which will be reachable via the bus shuttles. Other transit options to LAX include Metro Bus Lines 102, 111, 117 or 232.

The LAX City Bus Center is also served by Beach Cities Transit 109, Torrance Transit 8, Culver City 6, Rapid 6 and Big Blue Bus 3, Rapid 3. Upon arrival at the LAX City Bus Center, transfer to the free LAX Shuttle which serves all airline terminals.
