Where’s the bus? Strike shuts down DASH bus lines in Los Feliz and Northeast L.A.

busRiders who use DASH buses in Eagle Rock, Highland Park and Los Feliz will have to find another way to get around after a strike brought service to a halt.

The labor dispute involving drivers with Veolia Transportation,  a private firm hired by the city’s Department of Transportation to operate some of its Dash routes, began on Thursday, leading to the suspension of service on 14 lines as well as reduced service on others, including a line connecting Lincoln Heights and Chinatown, where buses will run every 30 minutes.

The lines where service has been completely suspended include the Eagle Rock-Highland Park and Los Feliz.

Dash bus lines operated by other contractors, including service between Echo Park and Pico-Union, remain in operation.

Riders are urged to keep updated for service changes via the  Department of Transportation’s Twitter feed.
