Metro Bus line 201 sign newsletter

From East LA to Silver Lake, bus lines and stops are changing this month

It's June, which means the Jacarandas are blooming, illegal fireworks are popping and Metro bus riders are preparing for change.

The transportation agency updates routes every June and December, taking into account changes in ridership, travel patterns and other factors. This month's modifications will boost service for many riders -- like those who ride the 106 Line through Boyle Heights and East LA. Many others will not be so lucky, such as the riders of the 201, which passes alongside the Silver Lake Reservoir on its run between Glendale and Koreatown. That line will be discontinued.

The changes go into effect on Sunday, June 27.  Notices are being posted at bus and train stops, but you can also go online to find out about updates to specific routes and stops.

A letter to the community from Metro CEO Phillip A Washington about the North Hollywood to Pasadena Transit Corridor

Dear Community Members,

Sign up for The Eastsider's Daily Digest newsletter

It has been an honor to have served as CEO of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) for the past six years.

The passage of Measure M in 2016 launched an ambitious slate of transportation projects designed to transform mobility in Los Angeles County. One of those projects is the North Hollywood to Pasadena Transit Corridor, an 18-mile bus rapid transit project connecting North Hollywood, Burbank, Glendale, Eagle Rock and Pasadena.

We believe this project will provide a more convenient transit experience that will reduce traffic and encourage more people to take the bus in this corridor. We also expect it will boost local businesses in the area.

We appreciate the constructive feedback we’ve received on this project, particularly concerning our proposed route through Eagle Rock on Colorado Boulevard.
