Save Time On Commute to San Pedro: Ride Metro

By City News Service

Metro officials announced Monday the start of express bus service that will provide more frequent and faster commutes between San Pedro and downtown Los Angeles.

The Silver Line Express, which uses the I-110 Harbor Freeway ExpressLanes, will save riders 15-20 minutes each trip, with fares costing $2.50 per trip, Metro officials said.

The service includes a 950X line that runs every 20 minutes during peak “rush hour” times, while an off-peak 910 line will run every half-hour and make more frequent stops than the peak line. On the weekends and holidays, a 950 line will run every 40 minutes.

The express service replaces the 450 line and eliminates the need to transfer at the Harbor Gateway Transit Center, Metro officials said.

“We had two popular lines – the Silver Line and the 450 – and we combined them to improve service, convenience and reach for our patrons,” Metro CEO Phil Washington said. “The new line is also taking advantage of the speed offered by another of our projects: the Harbor Freeway ExpressLanes.”

The Silver Line Express is aimed at making it easier for San Pedro residents to get to downtown Los Angeles, while also encouraging more people to visit the San Pedro area.

The Battleship Iowa Museum in San Pedro is offering free admission to Metro riders as part of a promotion lasting until Jan. 31, after which Metro customers will be able to get $2 off admission.

“With increased frequency and service now extending all the way into San Pedro, the Silver Line provides a premiere path for Angelenos to access all of the unique destinations in the South Bay and beyond that is easy, convenient and affordable,” said Metro board Chair and county Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas.
