The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority has restored bus service to full pre-pandemic levels, with improved frequency on many lines as designated in Metro’s NextGen Bus Plan. Specifically, Metro has returned 300,000 service hours back into the bus network, resulting in a total of 7 million hours of service provided annually by the agency.
“It has been a goal of mine, as well as the entire Metro Board, to restore the level of service enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of customers each day to where it was before the pandemic,” Metro Board chair Ara J. Najarian said. “We encourage those who may have left us to try our system again to more easily reach their daily destinations.”
“We are pleased to restore our bus service to a full 7 million revenue service hours based on our NextGen Bus Plan,” Metro CEO Stephanie Wiggins added. “It has been a herculean effort to recruit, hire, train and deploy the operators necessary to get to this point, and I applaud the work of Metro’s Operations, People and Customer Experience teams to make it happen. Most importantly, I am grateful for our frontline bus operators who have delivered high quality bus service throughout this period.”
