Beginning this month, Metro will be changing bus service on select lines throughout the city, to "better serve" the new Expo Line and improve bus routes.
The changes will go into effect on June 17 and are aimed at improving bus connections to the light-rail line that connects Downtown to the Westside, according to the Source. Bus routes that will be affected include lines 42, 217, 220, 450, 460, 534, 550, 705, 740, 754, 757, and the Metro Silver Line.
Some lines will be discontinued and replaced with alternative bus systems or reliance on the Expo line; others will be slightly re-routed or absorb additional stops.
These bus route changes are scheduled for three days before the Expo Line's Culver City and Farmdale stops are expected to open, Blogdowntown reports. With the debut of these stations, the Expo line will rung from Downtown's 7th Street Metro Center to La Cienega and Jefferson boulevards.
This will nearly complete the first phase of the $930 million Expo line project. Phase II of the project, which will extend the Westside end of the line from Culver City to Santa Monica, is expected to be finished in 2016.
