Metro announced changes today to its A, E and L line schedules beginning Sunday, which will result in the final trains of the night leaving earlier to accommodate testing on the new downtown Regional Connector.
The Regional Connector is a 1.9-mile twin tunnel under downtown Los Angeles that connects the A, E and L lines to allow passengers to travel to and through downtown with fewer transfers.
The new schedule times will remain the same once the Regional Connector opens, though some changes may be made based on feedback from the test operations.
Metro operates an owl bus service that runs overnight on select lines for Metro customers who may miss the last trains. The agency advised transit users to plan their trips using Google Maps, Apple Maps, the Transit app, Moovit or the trip planner on metro.net.
Beginning Sunday, the last train times every night of the week will depart sooner for the following lines:
- Last A Line train departing 7th/Metro to Long Beach at 12:03 a.m.;
- Last A Line train departing Long Beach to 7th/Metro at 11:06 p.m.;
- Last E Line train departing 7th/Metro to Santa Monica at midnight;
- Last E train departing Santa Monica to 7th/Metro at 11:14 p.m;
- Last L Line departing Union Station to Azusa at 12:14 a.m.;
- Last L Line departing Azusa to Union Station at 11:02 p.m.;
- Last Line train departing Pico/Aliso to Atlantic at 12:10 a.m.; and
- Last L Line train departing Atlantic to Pico/Aliso at 11:37 p.m.
